Raiders target Sussex vineyard

Published:  03 December, 2009

Burglars have stolen £32,000 of wine from a Sussex vineyard.

The raid took place at Nutbourne Vineyards near Storrington, and involved 3,000 bottles - many of them earmarked for Christmas party orders.

The thieves made off with 20 cases of Lagashe Rosé Champagne, an exclusive import for the winery.

The haul also included  110 cases of Lagashe Brut Champagne, 77 cases of Chateau St Bonnet, 60 of Chateau La Barronne and 40 of Chateau D'Avigny.

Sussex Police are urging any traders who are offered similar wines to contact them.

Nutbourne spokesman Quintin Wareham said: "It is our Christmas business. It has given us a big knock to say the least."
