Christian Holthausen

Holthausen, who comes from New York City, has worked in Champagne for over 12 years having looked after global marketing for Piper-Heidsieck and Charles Heidsieck, and Veuve Clicquot before that.

Speaking to the drinks business this week about his new role, Holthausen commented, “One of my goals is to get Nyetimber into France.”

Meanwhile, owner and CEO of the English sparkling wine, Eric Heerema said, “Christian brings with him a wealth of knowledge and we are delighted that he shares our belief that we create wines of a grande marque standard.”

Holthausen’s official title is marketing and communications manager – a new role that Heerema stressed was necessary to build the Nyetimber brand in the UK and abroad.
