Picnicking and dining


Official English sparkling wine partner to the Festival

Nyetimber is the official English sparkling wine partner to the Festival

For over 30 years, Nyetimber has had a single aim: to make the finest English sparkling wine, one to rival the very best in the world.

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.

Eric Heerema comments, ‘As a pioneer of English sparkling wine, Nyetimber are delighted to be the official English sparkling wine partner to Glyndebourne for the third year running, an institution whose dedication to creativity, excellence and innovation are integral to their ongoing success.’

Nyetimber at Festival 2020

Nyetimber is available from all of Glyndebourne’s bars and restaurants. You can also upgrade your picnic to include a bottle of Nyetimber, and new for this year is the Nyetimber Afternoon Tea, available from Mildmay restaurant before the performance.

You can pre-order drinks and dining on the Dining at Glyndebourne website.

If you’re attending the opening night of Festival 2020 on 21 May you can enjoy a complimentary glass of Nyetimber from their pop-up bar.

Look out for the Nyetimber vintage bus, which will be on site from 11-30 August. This beautifully reimagined 1968 Routemaster offers a luxurious setting for passengers to relax and enjoy a glass of Nyetimber. You can find the bus near the Garden Deli.
