Warden Abbey Community Vineyard

Nestled between the picturesque villages of Old Warden and Cardington, vines were first planted on this beautiful Bedfordshire field in medieval times by monks at the Cistercian Abbey of Warden. Centuries later, the Whitbread family re-planted the monks' "Lyttel Vineyard" in 1986, and went on to produce award-winning wines right up to their last vintage in 2008

Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity now lease the vineyard in an ambitious project to provide a unique community and educational resource - and are carrying on the tradition of making medal winning wines. The community vineyard is a not-for-profit venture. We work with other local charities, organisations and local schools to offer:

  • a unique setting for social and therapeutic horticulture
  • learning and skills development
  • help for people into employment or voluntary work
  • a range of volunteering opportunities for local people and community groups, and a great chance to be involved from vine to wine
  • wildlife and heritage projects
