Forty Hall Vineyard
- Artist in Residence -

Tucked behind the picturesque surroundings of Enfield's Hall Estate, a Grade I listed Jacobean Manor House, an ancient vine is quietly and carefully being revived. The artist residency involves documenting various aspects of social community, agriculture, and tremendous hard work that go into looking after this precious and historic vineyard located in Forty Hall and owned by Capel Manor. 



A good and serious project generating seriously good wine. Income from the sale of Forty Hall Vineyard's award winning wines is put straight back into their mental health and wellbeing project.

"Outstanding ... worthy of a place among the best sparkling wines of the UK"

Artist in Residence 

Vanessa's residency at Forty Hall Vineyard is a unique opportunity to capture each season's essence. Raindrops, labor, unity – each aspect will be captured and depicted to build a collection of paintings that tells the story of this resilient, intertwining community of volunteers facing unprecedented challenges in 2023.
