Christina Hall | Artist, Educator & Environmentalist
I am a partner in the business and work alongside Peter and the team throughout the year. As well as supporting the work in the vineyard and winery, I share my love of the countryside and the wildlife by hosting visits from local schools.
Natural England supports Breaky Bottom through the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme ‘to conserve wildlife, maintain and enhance landscape quality and character and protect the natural environment.’

Sheep have been part of the life at Breaky Bottom for hundreds of years. The original people who lived on the farm were shepherds.
School visits can be planned through discussion with Christina. Contact Here
