The South Pickenham Estate vineyard extends to two hectares and was planted by a former owner for private consumption.
Since 2010 the vineyard has been turned into a small commercial enterprise, selling up to 3,000 bottles of its own vintage each year, principally to local pubs and restaurants, but also in cases of six to members of the public. Delivery can be arranged anywhere on the UK mainland.
Two new varieties of grape, Bacchus and Chardonnay, have been added to the established Seyval Blanc, Muller Thurgau and Schonburger varieties.
The grapes are pressed, fermented and bottled at a Suffolk winery to produce a delicate medium dry white wine which is very refreshing on the palate and has a beautiful aroma. It has citrus undertones and a pleasant light finish. There is also a recently introduced sparkling offering.
