Ridgeview Estate is officially a STAR!

Ridgeview Wine Estate is absolutely delighted to have been recognised as one of the 50 most entrepreneurial companies at the government’s 50 Food and Drink Stars awards.

50 Food and Drink Stars was set up in response to the revival of food and drink industries in the UK, and to recognise food and drink entrepreneurs for their contribution to the UK’s economy.  The initiative has been launched to help the winners grow their businesses and get more of their produce on supermarket shelves and dinner tables in the UK and across the world.

Joining a host of amazing businesses, Tamara and Simon Roberts, CEO and Winemaker of Ridgeview, represented the business at Downing Street on Thursday 26th February 2015.

This year marks Ridgeview’s 20th Anniversary and in that time we have helped prove to the world that English sparkling wines can compete with the very best.  We now export our award winning sparkling wines to fourteen countries and we are looking forward to continuing this success as we double our production over the next five years.

As a business we are very proud to have been included in DEFRA’s Top 50 Food Stars list as a reward for our pioneering work in the English sparkling wine industry.

"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."
