The experience is available from 1pm – 5pm, Mondays to Sundays and is priced at S$78++ per set (suitable for 2 persons).

Britt Ng, Head Sommelier at Shangri-La Singapore, said, “I am thrilled to be partnering with the Nyetimber team to create this special high tea experience, combining quintessential British tradition with the lush tropical surrounds of Shangri-La Singapore. Nyetimber has been excellently received by our guests to date, and I am looking forward to showcasing the versatility of these wines – in particular, guests will find that, thanks to its sweeter nature, Nyetimber’s Cuvee Chérie pairs excellently with the local flavours served in The Lobby Lounge.”
Nyetimber was the first English producer to exclusively grow the three celebrated grapes varieties — Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Numerous accolades and awards have positioned the brand as an internationally renowned producer, surpassing all expectations of what can be achieved in English winemaking.
