Bobbington Staffordshire England
Description : 

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, deli and tea room are run by Clive's wife Lisa, and offer a great day out for visitors.

"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.

As one of the Midland's biggest vineyards we enter our wines into local, national and even international competitions yearly. One of the biggest on our calendar is the United Kingdom Vineyard Association Awards, which took entries earlier in the year.

Last week the results were published and we took home no less than eleven awards for our wines! Big winners were our dry white Tom Hill 2014, which took home a Gold medal (one of only 32 in the country!), and our medium dry white Penny Black 2014 which took a Silver medal!
