Ridgeview wines' history began in 1995 at the base of the South Downs with their chalky soils when sparkling wine production in England was largely unexplored. Now managed by the second generation, sustainability is at the heart of their business, and Ridgeview is currently the only holder of B Corp certification for a traditional method English sparkling wine company.

Grapes are sourced from original estate vines, along with carefully selected partner vineyards across Southern England. Handpicked grapes are gently pressed in whole bunches, and fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness. A selection of base wines go through malolactic fermentation before blending with recent vintages and reserve wines to obtain the perfect balance. Secondary bottle fermentation takes place in naturally regulated underground cellars with ageing on lees of 18 months to give a creamy roundness to the final wine.

A pale-gold pioneer of the fresh, fruit-forward English style with a fine mousse and bright elegant finish. Aromas dance between creamy citrus zest and white peach, gently balanced by fresh honey. On the palate, crisp apple and brioche are met with the characteristic freshness and finesse. Elegant now but will age gracefully over time as the Chardonnay matures.

The perfect partner to smoked salmon, shellfish or lemony goat’s cheese canapés but will also pair well with mackerel ceviche, herb & citrus salad, or a white crab linguine.
