Earth Day 2021
Today is Earth Day, and we’re celebrating with Nyetimber, the winery pioneering the English Sparkling Wine category and the company that understands the importance of earth friendly practices within the wine industry.
Nyetimber is the first producer of English sparkling wine to exclusively grow the three celebrated grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Their flagship wine, the Classic Cuvee Non-Vintage blend creates a distinctive nose of toast and spice, with a palate of honey, almond, pastry and baked apples.
They have designed their vineyards with sustainability in mind, using “wildlife corridors” that protect the surrounding woodland and meadows. They use sheep instead of lawnmowers to keep the area from overgrowth, utilizing both the animal droppings and the waste of the pressed grape skins to keep the land naturally fertilized.
Pair this with a fresh Spring salad or prosciutto wrapped melon and raise a glass or two to Mother Earth and Nyetimber. Cheers!
