Family-run boutique wine producer, Nutbourne, is part of a growing trend that sees restaurants own their own vineyards. From May, the Gladwin brothers – owners of The Shed and Rabbit restaurants – will be opening up Nutbourne to the general public.
Situated in the heart of West Sussex, the vineyard will be open to the public for the very first time, allowing customers to see how the grape goes from the vine, to the bottle, and finally to the restaurant tables.
Vines were first planted at Nutbourne in 1980 by one of the early pioneers of wine grape growing in this country. The Gladwin family has owned and managed the vineyard since 1991, and it is now considered one of the premier wine producers in the South East of England, offering a range of estate grown still and sparkling wines.
