When you think of Scotland wine isn’t really the first thing that comes to mind. A chef from Perthshire, however, is hoping to change that. Pete Gottgens has planted vines in the grounds of the Ardeonaig hotel in Perthshire and hopes to produce Scotland’s first commercially available wine. Inspired by dessert wines produced in Canada and Sweden he has planted 48 vines of four different varieties. He hopes they will produce something this year even if it does turn out to be vinegar. It will certainly be interesting to see the results.
