New Hall Vineyard is a producer with over 65 hectares of vines and is one of the oldest and largest in the country. First established in 1969 by the Greenwood family, in the Essex village of Purleigh. The first English Vineyard in Purleigh was planted in 1120 and according to the local Parish records only 500 yards from where New Hall Vineyard is today. It covered about three acres of land on the south facing slopes next to All Saints Church in Purleigh, where George Washington's great great grandfather, the Reverend Lawrence Washington, became Rector in 1633, until removed from office by the Puritans for tippling to much of the local brew. In 1163 news of the flourishing Purleigh Vineyard reached London and was then taken over by the Crown and commissioned to supply its wines back to London. Except in 1207 when its recorded that two barrels of Purleigh wine were ordered by the Crown (at a cost of 18s 6d each. less than a 1p per bottle) to be sent to Bury St Edmunds instead, in readiness for the arrival of King John. The 2012 is a crisp, aromatic wine. It shows lime, apple and nettle aromas on the nose, with a citrus and attractive flinty, mineral palate.
