Best sparking wine award in Dutch competition

In June 2011 we launched Ridgeview Sparkling wines in Holland through Karakter Wine Imports.  Therefore, we are thrilled to announce that Ridgeview's Cavendish 2009 has been awarded the prize for the Best Sparkling Wine in the 23rd Proefschrift Magazine Competition.

This competition is one of the most respected competitions in the Dutch market. Please see here for details.

"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."

Tim Atkin

"Thank you for a wonderful visit and a sensational tasting. I greatly enjoyed visiting Ridgeview and tasting your delicious wines.  Many congratulations for your great work."
