Happy wine days at Copdock Hall

Happy days at the weekend when we received a Silver Medal from the East Anglian Vineyards Association for our rose – up from a bronze last year
Thanks to them for a great social at Toppesfield Vineyard and for all those who support Copdock Hall Vineyard.

Copdock Hall Vineyard in EADT wine feature

Great to feature in an excellent four-page spread on East Anglian wines in the features section of today’s East Anglian Daily Times. Humbled to sit alongside such exulted company including Winbirri Vineyard which recently won Decanter magazine’s world’s best single varietal white wine award for its bacchus wine. Our more modest 2016 rose is now on sale for £10. See the Vineyard section of this website for more details and how to buy it.

Cheers to second Copdock Hall rose

We had the arduous task of tasting this year’s Copdock Hall Vineyard rose this morning…and very nice it was too! Blended at Shawsgate Vineyard in Framlingham, the 2017 bottle is similar to last year’s, maybe a bit smoother but more fragrant. Hoping to receive our batch in May – cheers.

Spooky goings-on at Copdock Hall

During redevelopment work for our office, we came across this – an ouija board. Not sure whether it’s harmless or sinister although our builders seem to have had a laugh by chalking ‘Ian’ on the board. Also not sure what we’re going to do with it. Maybe we should ask someone or something…
