Nyetimber are one of the pioneer’s of the English wine industry. In 1988, two Americans, Stuart and Sandy Moss were the first to plant the three traditional sparkling wine varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Their vision for producing the highest quality sparkling wine in England has led Nyetimber to great acclaim with the estate consistently winning awards for their wines.
In 2007, winemaker Cherie Spriggs moved from Canada, (along with her husband and assistant winemaker, Brad Greatrix) to join the Nyetimber team. Cherie was recently named Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at the 2018 International Wine Challenge. This is the first time this prestigious award has been won by a winemaker outside of Champagne and by a female. It is testament to Cherie’s incredible skill and the achievements of the English wine industry on the global platform.
