Piers Greenwood is a bit of a visionary, he planted his vineyard in Purleigh, Essex in 1969, which makes it one of the oldest in the UK. The vineyard benefits from a very special microclimate and Purleigh is one of the warmest and sunniest spots in the country. Today New Hall Vineyard has 40 hectares under vine and one of the largest plantings of Bacchus in the UK. Winemaker Piers has won the prestigious UK Winemaker of the Year Award in 2013, 2015 and 2016 and his highly acclaimed and award-winning wines showcase English Wine at its best.

The vineyard is situated in the Crouch Valley wine region, which enjoys a temperate climate, with warm, dry summers. The sheltered position ensures a long growing season which allows fruit to obtain high sugar levels at maturity and to develop intense, complex aromatics. The vines are some of the oldest in the UK, so the pruning methods are adapted to the age and vigour of the vine. A strong emphasis is placed on soil health, in order to minimise the use of herbicides. Mechanical under-vine treatments are employed to suppress weed germination, thereby minimising the use of weed-killers. A programme of subsoiling and row cultivation improves soil health alongside the application of manure.
