Rathfinny Wine Estate

Cradle of the human race

Rathfinny Wine Estate, here in ‘sunny’ Sussex is nestled in Cradle Valley which lends its name to our still wine.  Mark, our chef here on the Estate, recently travelled to a place described by Mark Twain as the “cradle of the human race” – India.  We felt we should hand this weeks blog over to him.

I have just returned from a road trip through the heart of India to raise awareness and cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust for cancer patients who need Home Care Assistance.  This is my report from the Dumball Rally 2017.  The idea was to borrow some ancient Mahindra Jeeps from some very nervous owners and drive around 2,000 km in 8 days through the heart of rural India.  There followed a fantastic adventure across one of the most amazing countries this planet has to offer.
