Customer feedback:

"One of the best English reds out there, especially considering the price. Fruity, light, and easy drinking. Would definitely recommend Aromas of damson, cherry, blackberry, and pepper. Slightly off-dry, medium- body, low tannins, medium acidity, and flavours of cherry, raspberry, red currant, damson, and pepper, giving a medium finish"

The Story

It was the vision of farmer Martin Vickers 30 years ago to plant a vineyard that would one day match continental sites.

Today, 30 acres of vines are managed by Martin and produce award-winning wines crafted by his son Clive. A family business, the acclaimed shop, restaurant & tea rooms are run by Clive’s wife Lisa, and offer a great day out for visitors.

THE VINEYARD
“It was my vision to create a vineyard on a par with continental sites. I am really proud of the quality of vines we grow today.”

Martin Vickers – Founder and Vineyard Manager.

The first ½ acre was planted in 1983 by Martin who still runs the vineyard today with his family.

By 1991 a further 22 acres were added and today the vineyard totals almost 30 acres, making it one of the largest in the UK.

Halfpenny Green Wine Estate is situated 250ft above sea level in well-sheltered south facing slopes, with light, sandy free-draining soil.

THE GRAPES

The vines, spread over 30 acres, are comprised of sixteen different varieties, each producing a different grape.

Familiar varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir feature prominently, and are used in producing the Estate’s award-winning sparkling wines, amongst others.

Due to the cooler climate, a variety of weather-hardy grapes are also grown throughout the site, including varieties such as Bacchus, Huxelrebe, Madeleine Angevine, Regent, Rondo and Schönburger, to name a few. This means that, even with the Great British weather, the vines still have good yield and produce high quality grapes.

THE WINES

“It’s a reflection of the quality of the grapes grown here on our slopes that we are able to produce wines which win national awards”

Clive Vickers – Founder and Head Wine Maker.

The Estate’s winery was built in 2005 and produces between 50-60,000 bottles of own-label wine each year, all made using grapes grown on site.
