BRITISH BORN, GLOBALLY ACCLAIMED
Nothing short of exceptional
Life is for celebrating
Ridgeview has been at the forefront of the recent evolution of English sparkling wine production. A second-generation family company situated in the South Downs National Park producing world class sparkling wines.
In 2010, Ridgeview became the first winemaker from outside of Champagne to win the overall Best Sparkling Wine in the World at the Decanter World Wine Awards. More recently Ridgeview has been crowned the English Wine Producer of the year and the Intentional Winemaker of the year at IWSC 2018.

Wiston Estate's traditional Coquard Press is one of only four outside of France and is unique to the UK
The Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743. Its 6,000 acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Downs and the flat clay soils of the Weald. The Wiston Estate Vineyard is situated on the south facing chalk slopes of the South Downs in West Sussex.
Wiston’s wines are made by English winemaking legend, Dermot Sugrue. Dermot is the scientific artist who has honed the unique flavours of Wiston wine. His unwavering commitment to purity and a desire to express the terroir of the vineyard have helped Wiston to win some of the most prestigious industry awards - such as a Platinum, Best in Show at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2019.
Pioneers of premium winemaking
With roots firmly planted in the local community, the Bolney Estate continues to help forge and shape the burgeoning English Wine industry, with their grapes grown and hand-crafted into award-winning wines from their impressive 104 acre vineyard in the beautiful Sussex countryside.
MD and Head Winemaker at Bolney Wine Estate, Sam Linter’s philosophy is simple, “Our mission is to produce delicious artisanally made quality wines.” With a host of accolades under their belt, including the UK Wine Award’s Winery of the Year 2017, Bolney aren't just one of the oldest, they're one of the best.
One of England's finest and most respected producers
When 10,000 bottles of Balfour Brut Rosé, made from the first harvest in 2004, won a gold medal at the International Wine Challenge in 2008, the Estate was officially on the wine map and there was no turning back. An exciting journey to create England’s finest wine had begun.
Over the following years Richard formed a team of experts in the field who in turn assisted him with creating a state-of-the-art Winery and tasting room on the Hush Heath Estate, which opened in 2010. This later was developed further with the addition of an award-winning visitors centre overlooking the landscape. This now functions as a centre for English wine excellence and discovery, with production, education and winemaking at its heart.
Rulers Breed Rebels
Fitz is a sparkling wine from England, but not as you know it. Unlike your usual (Champagne style) English sparkling, this fun, fruity fizz is Prosecco-like in taste and price.
With Prosecco sales continuing to boom, up 55% in value and 39% in volume in 2018, three clever wine enthusiasts sort to reclaim some of that territory with something similar but home-grown. And so, in 2016, Fitz was born.
This Charmat method wine – whereby the secondary fermentation is in tank, rather than bottle – is friendlier to both palate and pocket, appealing to those who love a fruit-led, fresh
A supply chain befitting of world-class wines
