Mike Roberts (1943-2014)

Mike RobertsIt is with great sadness that we need to inform you that Mike Roberts has passed away. As some of you are aware he had been ill for a period of time but this still comes as an almighty shock to all of us.

Mike was a huge and proud part of the English and Welsh wine community, serving as the Chairman of the EWP for many years.

Of course we will organise an occasion to celebrate his life - what we'd ask you to do today is to raise a glass to Mike and say 'cheers' to what has been a wonderful, fun and hugely fulfilling life.

We'll miss him massively.

Chris, Tamara, Simon, Mardi, Simon and all the team at Ridgeview.


"Would I admit to my French friends (who make such glorious wine) how often I drink English these days? Yes. Proudly."

Hugh Johnson

" Here’s one of England’s finest fizzes, with lovely freshness, lemony acidity and a bit of toasty richness. Quite complex and brilliantly balanced, this would convert any sceptic."

Jamie Goode

"… Today’s king of fizz is Mike Roberts of Ridgeview Estate."

Anthony Rose

"England's vinous glory: fizz made in the image of champagne.  Alluring and zesty - a sort of rustic Bollinger."

Jancis Robinson

"If the Champenois get to taste this ...They will be booking their seats on the Eurostar."
