Volunteers Crush Grapes at London Winery

Winemakers always hope their customers want to drink their wine. But few want them to help make it, too.

As a startup, east London's Renegade Urban Winery has limited funds for a big workforce come harvest time, so they turn to volunteers to help process the grapes, with payment in fun, food, some teaching and a few glasses to drink.

The owner set up Renegade in 2016 and uses grapes from 15 vineyards in Britain and abroad.

It produces 80,000 bottles a year, many sold with labels bearing the faces of Londoners.
