From May, the Gladwin brothers who brought London The Shed and Rabbit restaurants will be opening up their award-winning family run Nutbourne vineyards to the general public. Part of the new renaissance in English Wine, Nutbourne is a family-run boutique wine producer making still and sparkling wines in the heart of West Sussex, and is a part of the new drinks trend seeing restaurants owning their own vineyards. The vineyard will be open to the public for the very first time for tastings and will allow customers to see how the grape goes from the vine, to the bottle and finally to tables of The Shed and Rabbit.
Vines were first planted at Nutbourne in 1980 by one of the early pioneers of wine grape growing in this country. Since 1991 it has been owned and managed by the Gladwin family. The vineyard has developed and expanded as English wines have come of age and they now grow seven different varieties of grape. Nutbourne is considered one of the premier wine producers in the South East of England, offering a range of estate grown still and sparkling wines which can compete anywhere in the World.
Last autumn, the team behind the acclaimed Notting Hill restaurant, The Shed launched a new restaurant on the iconic King’s Road. Brought to London by talented brothers, Richard, Oliver and Gregory Gladwin, Rabbit is a true celebration of British ‘wild food’ with an emphasis on sustainability.
