Sustainability at New Hall

New Hall is home to some of England’s oldest vines, including a plantation of Pinot Noir planted 50 years ago – so looking after the long term is nothing new here.

Maintaining the health, vitality and longevity of the heritage vines is at the forefront of Estate Manager Andy Hares’ vineyard practices. Having learnt his craft in French organic vineyards, in the last few years he has introduced a policy of low-chemical intervention, mechanical weed control and a diverse range of cover crops. Most recently, he planted almost 5 acres of wildflower meadow, and has joined the RSPB’s Operation Turtle Dove to monitor and support their declining population.
