Forty Hall Farm is home to Forty Hall Community Vineyard, an award-winning social enterprise that is led and managed by volunteers.
As well as operating as a local, sustainable food project and a small not-for-profit business, FHCV offers exciting opportunities for volunteering, learning and skills development in the beautiful setting of Forty Hall Farm. The aim of the Vineyard is to bring wine production to the heart of the local community and to champion quality, sustainability, health, wellbeing and community involvement. Volunteers meet at the Farm on a weekly basis to look after the vines and to learn about vine-growing and wine-making.
We have ten acres of vines planted on the Farm and celebrated our first harvest in the autumn of 2013. We are looking forward in the spring to the release of our 2016 Ortega – a fresh and aromatic still white wine – and in the autumn to our 2015 Vintage London Sparkling Brut made from organic Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier grapes grown on site. Forty Hall Vineyard wines, when available, are sold in the Farm Shop.
