Ridgeview’s place in the global wine scene was bolstered following American CBS Channel airing a story filmed onsite at the winery. The TV news piece celebrated Ridgeview’s global accolades as current ‘International Winemaker of the Year’ in the International Wine and Spirit Competition, and Number 36 in the Top 50 Vineyards in the World; the only English wine producer to feature in this global list.
On the back of Ridgeview’s International Award success, we were contacted by the leading USA broadcaster for a piece on the coveted CBS This Morning Saturday Program. The program is available to watch on CBS – a network that has almost 9 million primetime viewers.
Ridgeview’s strong international presence was elevated further this spring when Simon Roberts, Head Winemaker, travelled to the USA to fulfil a series of engagements. Simon presented on English sparkling wine at Google’s HQ before heading down to Los Angeles for Effervescence, the premier Champagne and sparkling wine event in America. From there Simon travelled, sampling Ridgeview with over twenty restaurants throughout California, Nashville and New York.
Ridgeview’s foray into the USA has resulted in the exciting new listing of Bloomsbury, Fitzrovia in Thomas Keller’s globally acclaimed three-star Michelin The French Laundry revered wine list – the only English wines to do so. Ridgeview were also recently awarded two Gold Medals in the coveted USA Texsom International Wine Awards the only English Winery to achieve Gold & Judges Selection for the Limited Edition Ridgeview Blanc de Blancs 2014.
