Dorset Vineyard Drinks Up New Craze

A Dorset vineyard has found itself in the middle of a new craze sweeping Europe.

Furleigh Estate has received 100 requests from collectors who are after the metal caps that go on the top of their sparkling wine bottles.

Said Rebecca Hansford of Furleigh Estate: "We were aware that people collected examples of leading vineyard's bottle caps, but didn't think any more about it. However a couple of months ago, just after we won the UK Winemaker of the Year award, we started getting letters from people all around Europe asking for one of our bottle tops. Some want hundreds so they can sell them on, so we have had to ration them to one per request. Thankfully most include postage costs so we are happy to oblige. The letters come from right across Europe, from France and Spain across to Turkey and Greece."
