Description

Gold award winner at the Decanter tasting awards and Sommelier wine awards 2013 and winner of the International Wine Challenge (IWC), Ridgeview Wine Estate has, over the past two decades, consistently produced high quality and award-winning sparkling wines using the classic grape varieties from Champagne - expressing Chardonnay-dominated wines, supported by the fullness of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

The Roberts family and the Ridgeview team are pioneers in the English sparkling wine scene. Their dedication, passion and determination have significantly contributed to the international reputation and popularity now attributed to English Sparkling Wine, and keeping it in the family, second generation Simon Roberts is now head winemaker, and his sister Tamara is CEO.

While Ridgeview is still located on its original site in East Sussex, it has developed relationships with surrounding growers to accommodate the vineyard’s rapid expansion, whilst continuously investing in the latest equipment to ensure the best quality in all aspects of the winemaking process. These investments have given the winery total control over all stages of production, from grape to bottle.

Nestled in the picturesque South Downs National Park, Ridgeview Wine Estate is the perfect location to learn about the family’s rise to success and sample some exceptional sparkling wines whilst learning about the recent English sparkling wine boom. Enjoy a tour of the winery itself and take home a bottle of the award-winning Ridgeview sparkling wine and a branded Ridgeview sparkling wine stopper, exclusive to Truly guests.
