Visited yesterday. Lovely trip out. Leisurely walk round seeing all the different vines with stunning views. The wine was excellent. Great information of the history with lots of information on the wine making too, A must place to visit.

I Visited with 41 members Sawbridgeworth U3A and without doubt all 41 of us were delighted

The group was organised into three, each group was allocated an expert who explained the process from Vine right through to bottling

Each party was given enough time by expert, to ask as many questions as required
I must say that at each process the experts really did know their subject matter

Once the tour was over, all 41 of us were taken into the Tasting room and were served with a superb Ploughman's lunch
Following the lunch we invited to take part in Tasting four different, New Hall Vineyard wines

On completion we were given the opportunity to purchase wine, but I must say at this point, there was no hard sell from staff for us to buy wine, unlike my experience in Napa Valley USA.

In summary, great day, superb Staff, experts who really did know their stuff and above all, I really did enjoy the whole experience

We were made very welcome and had a very informative guide who explained the history and operation of the aerodrome. The museum and aeroplanes were very interesting and detailed. There is an equally fascinating wild life sanctuary there with owls nesting in several of the buildings. We were then given an excellent lunch before departing to the New Hall Vineyard where once again we had a comprehensive and fascinating tour with a very well informed guide and a delicious and fun wine tasting session. It was excellent value for money and we would highly recommend this combination of attractions. Thanks to all concerned for a fun and enjoyable day. We wish this venture every success in the future.

They held their first ever Christmas Party for our group on the 16th December 2016 and it was superb. We were greeted with a glass of fizz each, which was then generously topped up whilst we did a festive quiz. After that they produced a huge ploughman's lunch for each of us which was considerably more than adequate! After that we were taken on a tour of the winery and told what they intend to modernise next year - so much! and they have already changed and modernised the place beyond recognition. Then we got down to the serious stuff of wine tasting. Seven full wine glasses each and manager Lucy telling us all about each wine, which was brilliant. We were also given dry biscuits to cleanse the palette between each glass. To finish there were home made, warm mince pies. All in all arrived 11.30 and left around 4.00. Couldn't have asked for a better party. So good and have already (hopefully) booked next year!
