Meet The Team
Chris, the son-in-law of New Hall's co-founders Bill & Sheila Greenwood, ensures the vineyard remains a true family business.
He has exciting plans for New Hall Wine Estate and is putting a new emphasis on sales of New Hall's wines and the promotion of the Crouch Valley wine region.
His favourite Wine from New Hall is the Purlai Gold, a delicious dessert wine that also pairs great with a cheese board.
Becki is well versed with life on a working farm. She joined New Hall Wine Estate in 2016 after her Dad, Chris, took over the family business.
She is now the third generation of the family to be working at the vineyard.
Her favourite New Hall Wine is our Bacchus, and she is also partial to the Muller Thurgau on a warm summers day.
Multi-tasker Andy joined the New Hall Wine Estate family team in 2015 after serving an extensive wine apprenticeship around some of the best vineyards in Europe, including premier French red wine regions in Bordeaux and St Emilion.
His Main job is ensuring the fertility, maintenance and yield of the 122 acre of vineyard, which are tended by three permanent members of staff, their part time colleagues, and a small army of more than 20 seasonal pickers during harvest.
He loves our Classic Cuvvee and in Winter can often be seen with a pint of Guinness.
Lucy arrived at New Hall Vineyard in 2015 at a time of transition for the business, following the change in ownership.
Lucy served her wine-making apprenticeship during her travels around Europe, working in leading wine centres such as Bergerac in France and has a First Class(Hons) BSc in Viticulture and Oenology.
She has helped grow the commercial side of the business to new heights, making strong community connections throughout the industry.
Lucy really enjoys a glass of our Barons Lane White Wine. Her other favourite tipple is a classic Bloody Mary, the more Tabasco the better!
Olly joined the team at New Hall Wine Estate in May 2023 bringing with him a fresh approach to winemaking.
He graduated from Plumpton College in 2014 with a FdSc in Winemaking and hosts a weekly post cast every Thursday via his Instagram page @ollyshaw_winemaker
His favourite tipple form New Hall is our Classic Cuvee.
Jacques started at New Hall Wine Estate in August 2023 and brings with him experience of working as the Assitant Winemaker at Benguela Cove and Piekenierskloof vineyards in South Africa.
Jacques loves being creative in our New Winery, mixing the perfect blends for you to enjoy.
He was very excited to see snow for the first time this January at the vineyard.
Leasing & Cellar Door Manager
Anna has recently joined New Hall Wine Estate and is excited to bring with her over a decades experience from the Wedding & Events industry.
With her key attention to detail and bubbly personality we are sure she will be a great addition to the team.
Her favourite drink at New Hall is the Barons Lane Red, and she also loves a Espresso Martini.
Sim is an integral part of the team who has been with us since 2021. Ensuring that the warehouse is organised for all bottle orders going out of the business for our Trade Accounts and the General Public.
He also is the man behind all our bottles being labelled so expertly and precisely.
Sales & Operations Assistant
Jana has been with New Hall Wine Estate since 2006, when it was run by Chris' brother-in-law Piers.
She has proved to be a integral part of the team ensuring Sales and Operations run smoothly.
Her favourite bottle to drink from New Hall is our English Rose Brut.
Apprentice - Viticulture Crop Technician
Joe, who hails from sunny Dorset, recently joined Plumpton College’s Wine Division to start a Level 3 Apprenticeship as a Viticultural Crop Technician.
This Apprenticeship scheme is relatively new to the UK and has been born out of the increasing career opportunities and demand for viticulturists within the UK wine industry.
Joe’s been an instant hit here with the team. Enthusiastic and with super-human energy (we’re slightly jealous), Joe thinks nothing of following a long, gruelling day on the vineyard with a workout at the gym or a rugby training session
Nelly is the resident office Dog, her forever human is our General Manager, Becki.
Nelly enjoys warm sleeps in the sunniest spot in the office and running around the yard.
She is very friendly so if you visit she is happy to have a fuss made of her.
