As one of the original partners of London Collections: Men, Nyetimber continues its support in celebrating the very best of British style.  

For over 20 years, Nyetimber has had a single aim: to make the finest English sparkling wine, one to rival the very best in the world, including champagne. A true pioneer, Nyetimber was the first producer to craft wines made exclusively from the 3 celebrated varieties found in champagne: chardonnay, pinot noir & pinot meunier. Our wines are made from one hundred percent of estate-owned grapes.

Nyetimber’s numerous international awards prove that England can indeed produce wines of Grande marque standard, the vision shared by owner Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs. Nyetimber’s vineyards sit on the type of soil found in champagne, which dips under the channel and reappears in west Sussex.
 
In June 2013, Nyetimber will be highlighting ten pioneers of style on the Nyetimber style map, each of whom shares our values and vision.  A copy of the Nyetimber style map will be distributed to all attendees and each pioneer of style will be serving Nyetimber classic cuvee during the London Collections: Men.
