Nyetimber is one of the most highly acclaimed and well-loved brands of English wine, synonymous with prestige, quality and elegance. The estate’s story dates as far back as the 11th century with the Grade II listed manor house at its heart. Nestled in the beautiful Sussex countryside, Nyetimber estate was mentioned in the Domesday Book with its original name “Nitimbreha” thought to translate as “newly timbered house”. As is the case with every historical property, Nyetimber has changed ownership countless times over the years. Notable proprietors include Thomas Cromwell and subsequently, (when Cromwell fell out of favour with King Henry VIII) Anne of Cleves.
Every wine tells a story. Wiston Estate is a family-run enterprise situated on the picturesque South Downs in Sussex. The chalky soil and gentle south-facing slopes of the vineyard create an ideal environment for growing vines. The hills of the South Downs provide protection against prevailing winds and allow for maximum sun exposure which promotes the slow, steady ripening of the fruit.
