Group Visits at New Hall Vineyards
New Hall Vineyard is an English Wine Producer with over 65 hectares of vines and is one of the oldest and largest in the country. It was first established by the Greenwood family, in the Essex village of Purleigh, back in 1969. The grape vines grown at New Hall were carefully selected and have been planted only 12m to 24m above sea level, on well-sheltered, southern facing slopes of a shallow valley. Over the years this site has proven itself to be an almost ideal place, for the growing of vines in England, producing, above average crops of high quality grapes with naturally high sugars, each year.
In 2011 New Hall lead Essex & East Anglia to be the best wine region in England. In 2011 New Hall Vineyards won four gold medals out only seven awarded in this year's Annual English & Welsh Wine of the Year Competition. New Hall Vineyards won the following trophies:
Jack Ward Memorial Salver 2011
