If you have never tried an English wine before – well now is your opportunity. The vineyards of England are generally located in the warmer southern counties where the milder influences of the gulf stream have an important effect, as our northern hemisphere vineyards need a longer cooler growing season than in Europe to produce top quality grapes. More than 500 vineyards are in production across the UK and bottled annual sales has reached 3 million bottles, with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bacchus the most planted varieties.
The origins of the house date back as far as 1086, with an entry in the Domesday Book for the Manor of Nyetimber, which means `new timbered house`. The original vineyards extended to some 14 hectares, planted on gentle south-facing slopes with the classic grape varieties of the Champagne region. The vines are planted closely together to create a unique micro-climate, leading to wines of distinct fruit character.
