2018 marks an important anniversary for Lea & Sandeman as we celebrate our 30th Anniversary, but also for Nyetimber, probably England's most famous producer of Sparkling Wine. In 1988, as Charles and Patrick were busy setting up L&S in London, the Nyetimber vines were being planted here in West Sussex.
Being French and both a wine professional and wine lover, visiting Nyetimber was a great and enlightening experience. The quality of the wines being made here is really impressive, Les Champanois need to pay attention!
Following on form Gusbourne Estate’s recent award ‘2013 IWSC English Wine Producer of the Year’, they were also featured last night in BBC2’s ’12 Drinks of Christmas’ with Giles Coren and Alexander Armstrong: https://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b03mjypr/
