Plonkers of Brockley unite

London is not known for its fine wineries, but this hasn’t stopped people down the road in Tooting Bec growing their own grapes in their back gardens, and coming together as a collective to press and bottle them, creating their own Tooting tipple. Founder Richard Sharp has since started a London-wide cooperative, The Urban Wine Company, and they're recruiting.

It all seems like exactly the sort of thing that the gardeners of Brockley would be interested in, and the perfect excuse for a wine tasting tent at the next Hilly Fields Fayre. We know there are plenty of secret gardens in Brockley, but what about vineyards? And has anyone given wine making a go?
