Oldest wine-maker in England goes on sale
An award-winning vineyard, which is one of England’s oldest and was founded by a pioneer of British wine-making, is on the market for £2 million.
Chilford Hall Vineyard and Winery in Cambridgeshire was established 50 years ago by entrepreneur and founder of the Little Chef restaurant chain Sam Alper. It is now being sold by his widow, Fiona, and includes a 22-acre vineyard, wine-making equipment and about 45,000 bottles of wine produced on the estate.
The vineyard was set up in 1972 and has 18 acres of vines with nine different grape varieties. It produces over 18,000 bottles a year.
