Overview
More
Ridgeview was founded in 1995 by Mike and Chris Roberts and is dedicated to creating world class sparkling wines in the South Downs of England. Our vineyards specialise in growing classic grape varieties to make the highest quality bottle fermented sparkling wines. The world class status of our wines is reflected by the number of national & international medals and trophies we have received since the release of our first wines from the 1996 vintage. The second generation of the family have now become established in key roles within Ridgeview, enabling the continued expansion of the business. Our dedication, passion and determination have significantly contributed to the international reputation and popularity now attributed to English Sparkling Wine. This passion and determination is shared by a great team of dedicated staff who are fundamental to the continuing success of Ridgeview.

If you have not seen vines growing commercially, or wine made from the grapes in stainless steel vats, this is worth a visit. The surroundings in Sussex countryside are very pleasant, and the marketing/sales duo were entertaining and knowledgeable. We were there in a group...More

Thank you Scarlett for your informative, professional and enjoyable tour. There wasn't a great emphasis on selling us wine but a very honest approach to helping people understand the industry. This clearly reflected the organisation as a whole. A well done visitor building which showed...More
