HARVEST FEAST WITH OLLIE DABBOUS
THE HARVEST FEAST EXPERIENCE
Join us for the start of our harvest season with an unmissable dining experience hosted at the Nyetimber Estate with chef Ollie Dabbous.
One of the most respected names in the restaurant world, Ollie is Executive Chef and co-owner of HIDE in London, arguably the city’s most exciting new opening of last year which was awarded its first Michelin star within 5 months. Ollie himself will be cooking a feast-style lunch in our Manor Vineyard, surrounded by Nyetimber’s inaugural vines which were first planted in 1988. Wines selected for the afternoon have been specially drawn from the Nyetimber Library. Starting with Jeroboams of Classic Cuvee 2009, we will then compare the vintages of 1996 and 2007 in our Blanc de Blancs, served from Magnum. England’s first ever Prestige Cuvee, will follow as we enjoy 1086 Rosé, again in Magnum, before England’s first ever Demi-Sec, Cuvee Chérie to finish with dessert.
Proceedings will begin at 12 noon in the spectacular White Barn, followed by a guided tour of our vineyard before settling in to what promises to be a unique afternoon enjoying Ollie’s exceptional cuisine looking out over the South Downs.
Guests will be offered the unique opportunity to purchase our wines at cellar door prices, before bidding farewell to the estate at 4:00pm.
Tickets are priced at £250.
Non-refundable or exchangeable.
Ollie Dabbous, Michelin-Starred Mayfair Restaurant
28th September 2019 – £250
Ollie Dabbous opened his first restaurant Dabbous in 2012 to unprecedented critical acclaim. It fast became one of London’s busiest restaurants. He released his cookbook two years later, and maintained the Michelin star until he closed in 2017 in order to open HIDE. 5 months after opening, HIDE was awarded a Michelin star.
“The food I cook is entirely product-driven, taking the very best ingredients, questioning why we like them, and then highlighting those qualities in the most organic, restrained manner. It is food you can’t recreate at home, but it is also food that respects the integrity of the ingredient and the toil that goes into producing them.”
Our nearest train stations are Pulborough and Billingshurst – we’d recommend booking a local taxi in advance from the station.
If you are travelling by car please come to Nyetimber Vineyard, Gay Street, West Chiltington, West Sussex, RH20 2HH. (If using SatNav please ignore any instruction onto Lower Jordan’s Lane, continue on Gay Street until you see the Nyetimber sign).

Steven is a long-standing friend of Nyetimber and one of the UK’s most exciting chefs. When we first met, Steven, who is Sussex born and bred, was working at the Michelin-starred The Pass restaurant in Horsham. A series win on MasterChef: The Professionals 2013, and a multitude of endorsements from other star chefs, gave Steven the confidence to open his own restaurant and Etch by Steven Edwards was born.
