A trip to Ridgeview: A festive favourite

When we relaunched in September, we headed over to Ridgeview Estate in Ditchling, the home of award wining British Sparkling Wine (…and some of our favourites!).

Home to some of the oldest Chardonnay in the UK, Ridgeview is a family business started by the Roberts family in 1995. Their 18 acres of vineyard produce around 20,000 bottles across 6 blended Ridgeview wines.

We love visiting our suppliers, so it was great to be able to see where the Sussex magic happens, when it comes to making some of the best Sparkling Wine.

We finished up our tour with a tasting, reminding us why we have their Bloomsbury Sparkling Brut and Blanc De Noir on our wine list.

Alex recommends adding these Sussex Sparkling favourites to your menu on Christmas Day:

Ridgeview Merret Bloomsbury Sparkling Brut, 2013, Sussex
Easy drinking , this is the perfect way to start your Christmas Day

Ridgeview Blanc De Noir, 2010, Sussex 12.5%
Perfect served for the main event, alongside your Christmas Dinner
