Yesterday I headed along to Sunset Wine at Brighton Reserve in Scarborough. And I had an absolute ball!
I have always said out of UnWined, City Wine and Sunset Wine, that the Scarborough beach based wine festival is my least favourite. I am not entirely sure why, perhaps it’s because it’s a bit of a hike for me to get there. Something silly like that.
