Kings Honour for Winemaker Mr Robb Merchant of White Castle Vineyard

Proud Welshman Robb was recognised in the Kings First Birthday Honours for his services to viticulture.

Excitement, surprise and needing to pinch himself for a moment was how Robb describes his news. Having to keep this news to just himself and wife Nicola until the publications in the London Times on Saturday 17th June was a challenge to say the least. A huge “Thank you” from Robb who says without the support from Nicola and her dream of one day owning a vineyard this would not have been possible. The world of wine over the last 10 years has taken Robb, Nicola and White Castle vineyard on a great journey and long may it last, in Robbs own words if the next 10 years are anything like the last we are in for an exciting.
