A couple in Somerset have revealed how they quit high paying jobs in London to pursue their dream and produce wine.

31 years ago Ian and Jane Awty moved from London's Hampstead to start a vineyard in Cannington, Somerset. Now in their seventies, they're still hard at work, but remain convinced they made the right decision:

In the 30 years since moving, their crop has grown ten times in size from their first harvest in 1988 - and their wines have won 24 international awards:

They own 3 acres of vineyard, which produces about 7 tons of grapes and about 6,000 bottles of wine.

Yet it hasn't all been plain sailing. Jane had to go back to work to stay financially afloat:

When asked if they would do anything differently the answer is predictable:

"No I'm struggling to think!"
