Wyken Vineyard

Once occupied by Romans and recorded in Domesday, the ancient estate of Wyken is quintessential Suffolk: country lanes, hedgerows, patchwork fields and woodlands. Wyken is a 1200-acre farm which includes a flock of Shetland sheep and a 7-acre vineyard producing award-winning wines. In 2017 our Bacchus was a Gold Medal Winner and our Moonshine was East Anglian wine of the year in 2017.


We sell our products on site in our Country Store and Vineyard Restaurant – Wyken Bacchus, winner of the ‘English Wine of the Year’, and in 2009 East Anglian Wine of the Year. Wyken Moonshine, our well known sparkling wine. Wyken White, a perfect wine, off dry and welcoming, and our first screw cap. Wyken Madeleine Angevine, citrus fruits on the nose. We grow our grapes for the wine, which are then processed in Suffolk and Kent. We also grow Barley, wheat, Oil seed rape and Sugar beet, our Good Dog Ale makes you want to sit and stay, and is processed in West Sussex.

Awards: Our Bacchus 2009 has won the East Anglian Wine of the Year and English Wine of the Year.

Housed in a converted 400 year old barn, the Leaping Hare restaurant has been in the Good Food Guide for 25 consecutive years, as well as being a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide for 21 years. We serve a blend of modern and traditional European dishes, made with thoughtfully sourced ingredients.
