Now how about this for a wine fact?! Did you know that a remote eastern corner of Essex boasts more vineyards than any other district in the country.
It turns out the Dengie Peninsula in Essex has a unique climate for producing wine. Positioned on the River Crouch, the maritime breeze keeps the cold at bay.
New Hall vineyard in Purleigh was founded in 1969 with just a handful of vines.
Now it produces 12 varieties of grape and 100,000 bottles of wine.
20 years ago it was the only big vineyard in the Dengie, but now there are six vineyards in the area, covering more than 200 acres, producing 200,000 bottles of wine a year.
The group of vineyards in the Dengie are now working to establish the district as a specific wine region, called the Crouch Valley.
The idea behind it, to put the area and its wine onto an international stage.
