English sparkling winery Nyetimber became the first English fizz partner to the Cowdray Park Polo Club last month, meaning that the estate’s sparkling wines will be served to social members and visitors, and presented to victorious teams throughout the polo season.
Eric Heerema, the winery’s owner and CEO, said Cowdray Park is “one of the most historic properties in our home county of West Sussex.
“We look forward to working closely with Cowdray Park Polo Club during the world-famous summer season, as well as throughout the year to showcase the perfectly British nature of both Nyetimber and Cowdray Estate.”
Jonathan Russell, CEO of Cowdray Estate, said: “The events business at Cowdray, specifically Cowdray Park Polo Club, is more glamorous and exciting than ever before. We are thrilled to welcome such a fitting partner to Cowdray for the 2019 season, and look forward to celebrating the strength of two great British brands.”
This is Nyetimber’s second jump into equestrian sports this year. In May, the company named horse-riding stars William Fox-Pitt and Alice Plunkett as brand ambassadors for 2019 earlier this year.
