Vineyard Description

Giffords Hall is a family run vineyard located in the village of Hartest in Suffolk.

We produce a range of English wines including superb East Anglian Sparkling wines, award winning rosé, aromatic Bacchus, a wonderfully fruity red Pinot Noir and many more!

Giffords Hall is a family owned vineyard planted on the site of an ancient glacial riverbed near Long Melford in Suffolk. Our sandy/clay soil produces quality grapes, high in natural sugars and acids, that lend themselves particularly well to both sparkling and dry, aromatic still wines.

The vineyard was planted around 25 years ago and the vines are now in their prime. Madeleine Angevine, Bacchus, Reichensteiner, Rondo, Pinot Noir, (both Burgundian and Precoce), and of course our Pinot Blanc, all do well on this site.
