The DJ Wines' winery is situated in a peaceful and idyllic part of Monk Soham in mid Suffolk, roughly mid way between the attractive market towns of Framlingham and Debenham. It’s a beautiful location, full of local history.
The winery entrance over looks the Grade 1 historic village church of St Peters and is close to the site of the old medieval monastery, established as far back as the 10th century by Alfric, Bishop of East Anglia. In 1958 the Suffolk Parish History described Monk Soham as ‘a small dispersed settlement’. This is still true, with the High Suffolk Community Bus, driven by volunteers, providing a much needed bus service to local towns.
What could be better than to sit under the trees, in a quiet country location with a full glass?
You are very welcome to visit the DJ Winery, but please call first to make an appointment.
