Holmfirth Vineyard, is situated in the beautiful setting of the Holme Valley, West Yorkshire.
 

Holmfirth vineyard was planted in April 2008, 7000 vines were planted all by hand on 7 acres of land at Woodhouse Farm.  The farm was previously a sheep farm but the new owners, wanted to try something new, exciting and challenging and so embarked on a whole new adventure of vine growing and wine making.

 

Since the first planting in early 2008 steady progress has been made on the vineyard and the vines have started to flourish in the rich soil of the Yorkshire hill side. The first grapes are set for picking in 2010, with wine prodution starting in the winery shortly after, it is hoped that the new winery will be built during 2009.

 

Below are a selection of photoís showing the progress and development of the vineyard from its conception and the planting of the first 7000 vines.
