A COUPLE who run their own vineyard are set to launch a state-of-the-art visitors centre.

Coggeshall residents, Jane and Stephen Mohan, will open the £1million resource in late April at the West Street Vineyard.

The English Barn will be an eco-friendly hub using wine bottles as light shades, triple glazing windows and recycling cardboard as underfloor heating.

Despite not even being open, the building has already been short-listed for the 2013 RICS Design and Innovation award.
