Win a Bottle of St Edmundsbury Wine and a Grand Tour of Gifford’s Hall Vineyard for Two!

To celebrate St Edmund’s Day, Gifford’s Hall Vineyard in Hartest are offering you a chance to win a bottle of their St Edmundsbury wine and a Grand Tour of their Vineyard for two in 2022! 

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

Their 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.

Their popular Grand Tour includes a fully guided tour of the vineyard, with a talk on the grape varieties they grow and wines they produce, followed by a tasting and presentation of three wines and three liqueurs. They are run once a month in the summer.

The vineyard’s St Edmundsbury Pinot Noir 2019 is named in honour of St Edmund and their home town. Vines were grown within the town’s Abbey walls and in medieval times a third of the Tithe to Rome was paid in hogsheads of wine. 

The 'Red Ed' has a generous nose and is packed with fruit flavours such as plum, rhubarb and cranberry.  Great with game, pasta or a traditional roast.

To be in with a chance of winning, fill in the form below!
