Wine Talks British Business — interview
Brad Greatrix and Cherrie Spriggs have been producing award winning sparkling wines for many years and recently Cherrie Spriggs, the head wine maker at Nyetimber, was announced as the winner of the prestigious Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge 2018. This is the first time that the award has gone to a wine outside of the Champagne region.
Brad Greatrix is a lover of all things sparkling and, as he puts it, he is “passionate about producing exceptional wines from exceptional vineyards”. After a chance tasting with one of Nyetimber’s early sparkling wines they both immediately knew that there was something very special about this English sparkling wine. They decided to find out more and sent an email to Nyetimber in the hope of getting a response. Thankfully they did and within two weeks they had their first day of work at Nyetimber.
