Part of the new renaissance in English Wine, Nutbourne is a family-run boutique wine producer making award-winning still and sparkling wines in the heart of West Sussex. The vineyards were established as early as 1980 by one of England’s pioneering viticulturists, and the estate was subsequently bought by the Gladwin family in 1991, who remain owners to this day. In 2010, they built their own winery and cellar, and the winemaking has been overseen by Owen Elias for thirty years. Working exclusively with estate-grown fruit, the terroir at Nutbourne provides a unique and ideal wine growing environment – being planted on south facing green sand slopes, sheltered by the South Downs. The still wines are based on Germanic varieties such as Bacchus, Huxelrebe, Reichensteiner and Schönburger, while the sparkling wines are produced from Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir.
