Situated in Purleigh, this 100 acre vineyard is notoriously dry and temperate, perfect for a long-growing season and facilitating optimum ripeness for the best quality fruit. This site has been growing vines since 1170, as recorded in the All Saints Parish records. Wine produced at this site was even commissioned by King John to drink during the sealing of the Magna Carter. New Hall Vineyard was awarded the notorious United Kingdom Vineyard Association’s UK Winemaker of the Year Trophy in 2013, 2015 and 2016, firmly placing itself as one of England’s best-loved vineyards.
