Nyetimber teams up on new menu with Lympstone Manor and Michael Caines

Michelin starred Exmouth restaurant and country house Lympstone Manor has partnered with English fizz producer Nyetimber to serve “the most extensive” range of the brand’s wines.

Eric Heerema the winery’s owner and chief executive, said the wines “will beautifully compliment Michael’s precise and distinctive highest-quality modern European cuisine, as well as the elegant surroundings of this historic, yet contemporary property.”

Lympstone manor will throw a one-off dinner for restaurant and hotel guests to toast the new listing on 20 August.

Guests can purchase tickets for £255 for the evening, or stay at the manor for £785 (based on a double room), and get a chance to taste 5 different Nyetimber vintages, which will be matched with a menu designed by Caines.

Caines said it was “entirely befitting” for Lympstone to be partnering with a “great English sparkling wine producer.”

“I’m thrilled to be welcoming Nyetimber’s meticulously crafted collection to Lympstone as the perfect accompaniment to our menus and ethos.”

Lympstone Manor planted 17,500 vines of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay in 2018, and hopes to have its first harvest next year. A spokesperson said it will take a further two years for the wines to “develop and mature before release.”
