We are very happy to announce that Nyetimber is now widely available in Japan following an outstanding launch at the British Embassy in Tokyo on the 19th November. As the oldest foreign embassy in Japan, the Ambassador’s Residence proved to be the perfect location to launch a quintessentially British brand in a country where sparkling wine from around the world reigns supreme. Hosted by Deputy Head of Mission, Dr David Ellis, and Nyetimber Brand Ambassador, Mr Steffan Griffiths. . Guests experienced a Masterclass tasting of our full range of wines, including a special introduction to our 1086 Prestige Cuvee.
We are excited to bring England’s finest sparkling wine to discerning wine-lovers in Japan and to work closely with world-renowned Japanese chefs to highlight how wonderfully our Nyetimber wines can pair with traditional and modern Japanese cuisine.
Nyetimber wines are available within Takashimaya luxury department stores across Japan, and in the country’s best restaurants, bars and hotels. The collection is also available to purchase online through http://www.tycreation.com/product/nyetimber/index.html.
Eric Heerema, Owner & CEO of Nyetimber, comments; “We are excited to re-enter the Japanese market and bring Nyetimber’s award-winning sparkling wines to the discerning consumers and knowledgeable wine professionals in Japan. The market is an attractive one for Nyetimber, not only because our wines pair elegantly with many Japanese dishes, but also due to the longstanding desirability which luxury British brands enjoy there, as well as the level of consumer appreciation for the finest products. We look forward to growing the awareness of both Nyetimber and English Sparkling Wine in general across Japan.”
