20 Stories transforms roof terrace into a Nyetimber Vineyard in the Sky for summer

14 July 2022 by Deanna Thomas

After the success of the recent spring collaboration with Manchester Gin, it’s time for some fizz, which is why 20 Stories is planning to transform the 19th floor of No.1 Spinningfields into a stunning vineyard in the sky.

Officially launching on 20th July, 20 Stories have partnered with world renowned English Sparkling Wine, Nyetimber for the duration of summer.

Manchester’s highest restaurant will welcome guests to join them on the terrace overlooking Manchester’s ever-expanding skyline to experience their installation designed by the 20 Stories team and Springbank floristry. The ‘Nyetimber Vineyard in the Sky’ installation takes inspiration from vineyards in the South of England where Nyetimber grapes are grown. 

The terrace will be filled with grape vines so guests can immerse themselves in the British countryside whilst enjoying a glass of Nyetimber watching the sunset across the city. The drinks menu will consist of a choice of Nyetimber Rosé Classic Cuvee, Cuvee Chérie, Blancs de Blanc, Prestige Cuvee 1086 or Prestige Cuvee 1086 Rosé. 

A brand-new Terrace Menu, which will be perfectly paired with the Nyetimber range, has also been created. Small plates will include lemon, basil and mozzarella arancini with romesco sauce (perfectly paired with Classic Cuvee) or chickpea and coriander falafel with herb yoghurt (to be enjoyed with Blanc de Blancs).

“We are really looking forward to partnering with Nyetimber this year for our Summer Terrace,” says Natasha Davies, Marketing Manager at D&D London, who own 20 Stories. “20 Stories Terrace has become a firm favourite in Manchester with views across the city and we are looking forward to welcoming guests to sample some of our incredible Nyetimber drinks as well as a selection of 20 Stories food platters.”

For over 30 years, Nyetimber has aimed to make the finest English Sparkling Wine, one to rival the very best fizz in the world. Nyetimber is made from one hundred percent estate-grown grapes and is regarded as England’s finest sparkling wine. A true pioneer, Nyetimber was the first producer of English Sparkling Wine to exclusively grow the three celebrated grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Owner and Chief Executive Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs are committed to producing wines of exceptional quality. #PerfectlyBritish #Nyetimber. 

The Nyetimber team commented: “We are delighted to partner with 20 Stories this summer and bring the terrace to life with vines and florals inspired by our vineyards in the South of England. The ‘Vineyard in the Sky’ will be a sparkling summer destination to treat friends and family to a delicious glass of English Sparkling Wine whilst sitting amongst a canopy of vines and taking in the views of the city.”

The terrace will launch officially on 20th July and is open for guests to walk in at their leisure.
