Chilford Hall Vineyard

UK»England»Cambridgeshire»Chilford Hall Vineyard

The first vines at Chilford Hall Vineyard were planted in 1972 and are trained in a wide row and tall trellised system. This allows a larger leaf area to be exposed to the sunlight and the roots to spread widely in the generous soil space. This system of vine management ultimately intensifies the sweetness of the grapes. The vineyard, comprising 18 acres of free draining "flinty" soil, overlaying chalk and is situated on a south west facing slope to maximise the sunshine available during the summer months. Excellence of grape quality is a priority at Chilford Hall and to this end, the grapes are hand harvested and transferred immediately to the dedicated, former farm buildings which now house the winery. The pressing, fermentation, blending and bottling takes place on the estate under the expert management of our wine maker to ensure strict quality control during each phase.
