Ridgeview wines history began in 1995, when Mike and Chris Roberts decided to realise a dream. With a love of England and a passion for wine, they started to figure out the type of wine production they felt would give the best in the cool climate of Southern England. The traditional method sparkling wine made from the three classic varieties - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier- was the most suitable. At the time, sparkling wine production in England was largely unexplored and unproven so the dream to create world class sparkling wine in Sussex was a certainly a risk. At the base of the beautiful South Downs with their chalky soils, with the perfect site, the journey began.
After more than 20 years the production has increased to more than a quarter million bottles and Ridgeview is sold all over the world and in 2010 it has been awarded "Best Sparkling wine in the world" from Decanter.
