Welcome to Giffords Hall Vineyard
Giffords Hall a family run vineyard located in the village of Hartest between Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury in Suffolk. We produce a full range of English wines: A superb East Anglian Sparkling, award winning rosé, aromatic Bacchus and a crisp, dry white plus a wonderfully fruity red Pinot Noir blend.
We have a small Cellar door, open during the summer months and for Christmas, and hold regular open days where we exhibit the work of local artists, sculptors and potters. We offer a range of our own lavender products, locally crafted squire sticks from our woods, alpaca socks, wine accessories, fleeces from our rare breed sheep, juice from our orchard, candles, cards, baskets, picnic hampers, vintage and new etched glass, soaps and smellies and our new range of liqueurs.
The Cellar Door Shop is normally open from April - September 11:00am-4:00pm Tuesday-Friday and opens again after harvest in November until January.
The Cafe is Open during the summer months and bank holidays from 11:00am-4:00pm Saturday & Sunday (closed Mondays)
