Giles with some of his wine

A winemaker who has previously raised more than £4,500 for charity through sales of his artisan red wine has launched a new vintage.

Giles Cooke has created a distinctive Shiraz using fruit from Australia’s Barossa Valley near Adelaide.

All profits go to charities and Giles hopes that the new vintage of only 1,000 bottles could add a further £4,000.

Previous donations have been made to St Columba’s Hospice, who provided his father with care, and Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) in respect to his mother who lived with mental illness during her later years.

Giles is one of only 369 people in the world to hold the coveted Masters of Wine title and he is excited by the 2016 vintage.

It follows a near perfect growing season which has potentially produced the finest Our Fathers wine to date.
