What a wonderful find! We found this place accidently after visiting Framlingham Castle. We stopped in out of pure curiosity. We had a very warm welcome upon arrival. We were given a map of the vineyard and as it was a beautiful day we went on a little walking tour of the vineyard. When we got back we got chatting to the owner's son and we were given a few tazting glasses of wine. My son was offered a lovely grape juice which unfortunately, they had none available for purchase. I would have bought a couple of bottles along with the 6 bottle of gorgeous wine that we bought! I highly recommend a visit to this lovely vineyard. So nice to see that English wine is being made and is flourishing! Please visit and show your support. Excellent!

We just happened to pass the vineyard and decided to pop in, we were greeted by a lovely lady who gave us a map and explained what we would see around the vineyard, once we had walked around the lady offered us to taste the many different wines they
made,we spent about one and a half hours there, and ended up buying six bottles of wine, very nice

We went for the Vineyard Tour & Wine Tasting yesterday afternoon & thoroughly enjoyed it.
Had coffee & biscuits served in the pretty Courtyard when we arrived & afterwards. Very interesting, amusing & informative talk by Les & Thomas whilst walking around the Vineyard. The wine tasting held in the marquee was again very informative and we tasted eight of their varieties - white, rose (wonderful), sparking rose, sparkling white (amazing!!) and a very delicious red!!
A great afternoon made even better by the owner's very welcoming and friendly family and wonderful wines!!
Would thoroughly recommend the Tour & Tasting and we are looking forward to drinking the dozen bottles of wine we purchased on the day. Will definitely be back for more!!

We had a lovely tour round the vineyard with the friendly and engaging owner. The tasting was then informative and tasty - we ended up buying a mixed crate! This would be a lovely place to also just turn up for a walk, with a large amount of space to wander in and a great looking wooden climbing frame for the children.

very informative half day tour and wine tasting session, interesting to see how much of the process was carried out in house.
