Winner of Silver Medal

Inspired by the Roman god of wine, Bacchus, and by Hampton Court Palace’s Great Vine - one of the largest in the world, planted in 1769.

With a curvaceous wine glass inspired space and tiered overflowing pools represent a continuous flow of wine.

Multi-stem trees grow in barrels and bottle ends peek out of rosé-coloured steps. Small Buxus cylinders, like overgrown corks, emerge from the flowers.

The garden forms a secluded area that is perfect for relaxation or for entertaining guests during a summer evening soirée or wine tasting.
