International wine and spirit competition success

Ridgeview were extremely proud to be awarded two trophies at the 2011 International Wine and Spirits Competition Award Ceremony at the Guildhall in London. Ridgeview received the International Trophy for Best Bottle Fermented Sparkling Wine for the second time and the award for English Wine Producer of the Year for the fifth time.

The team were incredibly excited on the night to hear that Ridgeview was also on the shortlist for International Wine Maker of the year, which was won by McGuigan wines.

"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."
