“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 Vineyards are situated 250ft above sea level in well-sheltered south facing slopes, with light, sandy free-draining soil.
