Nyetimber has beaten most Champagnes in blind taste tests and won more awards than one could count… Essentially this gorgeous creation is British Champagne – (but we can’t call it “Champagne” as it comes from England) – and it tastes INCREDIBLE. If you don’t believe us, join us on Thursday 26th May 2016 and we guarantee you’ll be convinced!
The first Nyetimber vineyards were established by Stuart and Sandy Moss from Chicago in 1988. They carefully planted the vineyards with the classic Champagne varieties of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier which are suited to the soils – similar to those found in Champagne itself – and undulating slopes here. The wines produced are full-flavoured, premium sparklers made using the same methods as those in Champagne. The rich texture and finesse of the chardonnay-only cuvée put it on a par with fine Blanc de Blancs Champagne.
We’ll be joined for the evening by our Nyetimber expert to showcase the award-winning cuvées that have won enthusiastic reviews from the wine press and we can’t wait.
The tasting will accompanied by snacks provided by the Food Store and tickets cost £25 per person. The tasting starts at 7pm in the Wine Cellar. To book your place, please email Laura or call 07551 125 531.
