For more than 25 years, Ridgeview have been producing world-class sparkling wines. We planted our vineyards at a time where many believed that producing English wine just couldn’t be done. Today the English wine industry is thriving and we feel immense pride for the role we have played in that.
We promise to deliver a memorable moment in every glass, this is not only through the award-winning taste of our sparkling wine, but the occasion upon which you choose to open a bottle. A glass of Ridgeview is never easily forgotten and always best enjoyed in the company of friends and family.
HOME IS WHERE
THE HEART IS
We established our home in 1995 in rural Sussex on the edge of the beautiful South Downs. Since then, our family business has been making wines focused on exceptional quality from vine to glass.
We were one of the first wineries in England to focus solely on the production of sparkling wines from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties. With meticulous attention to detail and expertise in cool climate viticulture, we are producing fruit of excellent ripeness and wonderful natural acidity – perfect for sparkling wine.
The Ridgeview family have been making wines on the estate for twenty five years, focusing on exceptional quality from vine to glass. The philosophy in our winery is ‘minimal intervention’, while keeping control of the process and ensuring excellent quality in all that we do.
Every grape is handpicked and selected for perfect balance between ripeness, sugar and acidity. The grapes are then pressed in Ridgeview’s modern winery and lovingly transformed into our award-winning sparkling wine that is perfect for every celebration.
At Ridgeview, we welcome visitors for tours and tastings all year round. We invite people from all over the world to celebrate with us across a range of events from Ridgefest – our Summer music festival – to our chef’s dinners series to Easter trails.
We love nothing more than to host guests who want to kick back with a choice of carefully selected local produce and a glass of something delicious in our wine garden. From here you can drink in the breathtaking view from which we take our name.
Our full range of award-winning wines is available from our cellar door to take home with you seven days a week.
We’d love to welcome you.
Across the Ridgeview Estate, we are dedicated to three pillars of sustainable practice – people, the environment and economics. We audit our business against industry benchmarks and have invested in initiatives such as our waste treatment, Bio-Bubble, cover crop bio-diversity and solar power.
We are a second-generation family business. Our founder Mike Roberts MBE was recognised a pioneer in the English Sparkling wine industry. Passing the business down to his children Tamara Roberts, CEO and Simon Roberts, Head Wine Maker, in 2013 his legacy continues to thrive.
To us, everyone who works with us and everyone who visits the Ridgeview Estate is part of our family. We have an exceptionally talented and dedicated team, united by our vision to be recognised all over the world as the home of English sparkling wine and the heart of the UK’s winemaking industry.
Responsible for putting English sparkling wines on the global stage, Ridgeview has been awarded multiple international awards and accolades. Changing minds and hearts on the perception of English sparkling wine, Ridgeview have helped pave the way for our thriving industry.
