The green miles
Winemaker Peter Hall photographed at Breaky Bottom Vineyard outside Rodmell.
In the early 1970s, Peter Hall was a pig farmer based in the South Downs. When he decided to switch to agriculture, it may have been the influence of his Burgundian mother that encouraged him to try grapes rather than raspberries. Nearly fifty years later, his enterprise has been one of the pioneers and success stories of English Sparkling wine.
