    Wine maker Peter Hall
Constant winner of International GOLD medals, this is well respected as one of the best users of the dis-approved Seyval Blanc hybrid grape to make very high class sparkling wines.

The vineyard is several miles along an old army concrete road . It was first planted on an old pig farm in 1974 An infestation of badgers required action in the 1980s . This was combined with a tagging scheme sponsored by the University of Sussex. All badgers in the area are now being tracked as well as being fenced out . Since the millennium, Peter has concentrated on producing sparkling wine, and has no problems in selling every bottle released
The vineyard lies at 150 a.s.l. in a dry chalk valley
