Giffords Hall is a family owned vineyard planted on the site of an ancient glacial riverbed near Long Melford in Suffolk. The 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.

Grapes and Vines

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 Précoce), and Pinot Blanc all do well on this site.

Cellar Door

The shop is next door to the office, so someone is always at hand to help with your choice or wine collection. The shop contains a variety of other gift items including Giffords Hall’s own fruit liqueurs and picnic baskets.

Take the turning off the A134 between Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds signed for Shimpling and Chadacre. Follow the road over a small bridge for approx 4 mins.

At the T junction turn left, go to the top of the hill where you will see a sign to the right for Hartest. Do not take this turning, go straight ahead and the yard is on the right by the black barns.
