Ridgeview Wine Estate is an English winery located in the South Downs National Park in Sussex, England. The winery was founded in 1994 by the Roberts family, who were determined to show that England could produce world-class sparkling wines. The estate covers 16 hectares of vineyards, with a focus on the classic Champagne grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier.
Ridgeview has won numerous awards for its sparkling wines, including the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC), the Decanter World Wine Awards, and the International Wine Challenge (IWC). The winery is also the official supplier of sparkling wine to No. 10 Downing Street, the residence of the UK Prime Minister.
Ridgeview produces a range of sparkling wines, including Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Rosé, and a non-vintage blend called "Cavendish". The wines are made using the traditional method, with secondary fermentation in the bottle and extended lees aging. Ridgeview's wines are known for their crisp acidity, elegant fruit flavors, and fine, persistent bubbles.
