Nyetimber's owner and chief executive
For over 25 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 of English sparkling wine to exclusively grow the three celebrated grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Each bottle of Nyetimber is made from one hundred percent estate-grown grapes.
In 1988, Nyetimber planted its first vines and today, the House is regarded as one of England's finest wine producers. Owner and Chief Executive Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs are committed to producing wines of a Grande Marque standard. Nyetimber will be available throughout Cowes Week, and competitors and visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the English sparkling wine in quintessential British style aboard 'The Nyetimber' a beautifully re-imagined Routemaster bus, situated in Cowes Yacht Haven.
