Producers at a vineyard near Lutterworth which produces organic wine are popping corks after earning a silver award for one of their range.
Chevelswarde in South Kilworth is an organic vineyard which produces red, white and rose wines as well as growing and delivering organic vegetables.
The silver gong was awarded for its white wine by the Mercian Vineyards Association at its annual wine-tasting convention last month.
Ruth and John Daltry set up Chevelswarde in 1973 and their vineyard was one of the first organic sites in the country.
Soil at the vineyard is fed with compost, and instead of using pesticides, chemicals or fertilisers to guard the grapes against mildew and fungi, they use a combination of garlic and citrus.
Mrs Daltry said the primary reason for choosing to grow organically is health.
She said: “We believe that interference with the natural activities of the world upsets so many balances.”
People can attend wine-tasting sessions at the vineyard or order a vegetable box by calling 01858 575309.
Their wine is also available from The Wine Cellars in High Street, Lutterworth.
Mrs Daltry added: “We are really very happy with our silver award.”
