Giffords Hall Vineyard is now 35 years old, with matured vines producing their best grapes yet.

Situated on an ancient glacial riverbed, our 19-acre site grows upon fertile sandy loam soil over gravel to produce quality grapes, high in natural sugars and acids, which lend themselves particularly well to sparkling and still wines. It's this special terroir which gives our wines their dry flinty quality and delicate floral accents. Pinot Blanc; Pinot Noir, both Burgundy clone and Précoce; Madeleine Angevine; Reichensteiner; Rondo and Bacchus varieties thrive here. The vineyard was established with plantings of these modern clones.

Family-run, Award winning, English wine

Linda & Guy Howard purchased the vineyard in 2005 and at the time produced an English sparkling wine. The Giffords Hall label was officially launched in 2009 with a Rose and a Bacchus still wine. Over the years Giffords Hall has achieved success at national and international level and continues to produce elegant wines of the highest standard. Following his retirement, Guy was one of the founding directors of Wines of Great Britain and served on the WineGB board representing the small/medium producers. Guy sadly passed away in 2019 but Linda and their children, Ellie and Harry, continue his legacy.

Giffords Hall Vineyard has signed up for the sustainable wines of great Britain programme, and we are working towards using natural methods of weed control, disease prevention and canopy management. We employ minimal intervention principles and run our friendly flock of rare breed sheep on the vines. Indigenous flora and fuana thrive in our vineyard

The Winery

Wines are made using both stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. While our aromatic wines are habitually fermented in stainless steel to preserve varietal characteristics, others are lees aged in barrel to bring a higher level of expression and complexity. Each batch is individually monitored and the end wines are blended together by our skilled winemaker,

The Vineyard Team

Giffords Hall has a small and very dedicated team who work extremely hard to keep up with the ever changing seasonal demands of vineyard life.
