Celebrate with Nyetimber at Shepherd Market



Christmas 2015 is on its way; join us to kick-start the festivities with a complimentary* glass of England’s finest sparkling wine on ‘The Nyetimber’ – a beautifully reimagined 1968 Routemaster bus, between 6:00pm – 7:00pm at Shepherd Market on 3rd December.


Watch actor, writer and presenter, Michael Palin CBE, switch on the Christmas lights at 6.30pm in the original Mayfair village with a glass of the CSWWC 2015 Gold Medal winning Classic Cuvee 2010. Gentle bubbles pervade this pale golden wine. With toasty, spicy aromas supported by honey, almond, pastry and baked apple flavours, this is a very fine and elegant wine - the perfect aperitif to have before exploring the nearby boutiques and luxury shops for your Christmas gifts.


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. Nyetimber is made from one hundred percent estate-grown grapes and is regarded as England’s finest sparkling wine. Owner and Chief Executive Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs are committed to producing wines of exceptional quality.
