Ridgeview Wine Estate
The story began in 1995, when Mike and Chris Roberts decided to realise a vision, nurtured for many years. With a love of England and a passion for wine, they investigated the English wine industry with a view to understanding the type of wine production they felt would thrive best in the cool climate of Southern England. Their research pointed towards traditional method sparkling wine made from the three classic varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Nestled at the base of the beautiful South Downs with their chalky soils, the perfect site was found – the ridge with an unforgettable view. It was here the journey began. Whilst the vines were gently nurtured towards their first harvest, we were busy building a state-of-the-art winery. Ridgeview has one of England’s only bespoke underground sparkling wine cellars. Here, our wines are stored in perfect conditions to facilitate the all-important secondary fermentation and lees ageing process. This ensures the development of incredibly high quality, bottle fermented sparkling wines with the finest bubbles and a perfect mousse.
This multi awarding winning winery is very much a family business with two generations involved in the business. We invite Chaine members to visit and to purchase via our website at member rates.
