Jubilee English sparkling wine fever

Ridgeview have seen an incredible sales surge in the build up to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 London Olympics.  2011 was a record sales year at Ridgeview and already in 2012 our sales are up 58% on the same time last year.  May 2012 has been one of our biggest sales months ever on record.  Sales have tripled in comparison to the same period last year, which of course was also highly inflated from the previous year due to the Royal Wedding.

This tops off a fantastic month when Ridgeview were awarded 1 Gold, 9 Silver and 12 Bronze Medals in the 2012 International competitions announced at the recent London International Wine Trade Fair.  Ridgeview Knightsbridge (Blanc de Noir) 2009 was also recently awarded a Gold and one of only 12 wines as critics choice in the highly coveted Sommelier wine awards.

Ridgeview sparkling wines are now receiving global attention and are available in 10 countries worldwide including the latest addition of Australia.

"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
