Nyetimber Street Party

Nyetimber Street Party

I am not a royalist. I am really not. But I love a party. And I love English sparkling wine.

Nyetimber is one of the best, with 65 awards since the maiden vintage in 1992, including  ‘Best Worldwide Sparkling Wine’ at the IWSC competition. I brought a bottle of the 2005 vintage to a dear friend in Canada last year. She is a sommelier, occasional wine blogger and owns a terrific wine bar, and I knew she would love it. It is certainly something that people should be very proud of, and putting on their tables.

The street party took place in Battersea, with lunch cooked by Valentine Warner and Rose Prince. It was delicious and lots of fun. I am now craving coronation / jubilee chicken, which I can assure you has never happened before. I will need to work on a recipe.
