Giffords Hall Vineyard is a family run vineyard in Suffolk

About the winery
Giffords Hall is a family owned Vineyard near Long Melford in Suffolk where we grow Bacchus, Madeleine Angevine, Reichensteiner, Rondo and Pinot Noir varieties. 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. We make white, sparkling, rose and red wines and our wines have a delicate floral character very typical of the region. 90% of Giffords Wines are PDO or PGI classified and single estate only – we have three single Varietal wines.

History & Geography
East Anglia is fast becoming a recognisable wine growing region. In addition to areas of very favourable terroir, land prices and the driest climate in the UK, have resulted in Vines being grown commercially in the area from the first modern pioneers of the 40s. This statistic doesn’t apply just to the present: there is strong evidence to support that theory that East Anglia supplied a third of the tithe of grapes to Rome, and their legionaries enjoyed the East Anglian posting because of ‘the quality of the wine’. Whilst the Tourism and marketing bodies in the region are not as strong as the West County nor can they match the marketing spend of the Sussex house sparkling vineyards being planted, East Anglia is fast catching up. UK vineyards in southern Britain import nearly half their grapes from East Anglia, particularly the Bacchus and Pinot Noir varieties which require drier weather to fruit and ripen. East Anglia has consistently won more gold medals for Bacchus than any other
