CHAMPAGNE BLEND - Champagne Blend refers to one of the world's most distinctive wine styles – the sparkling wines made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot-Meunier that are most famously associated with the Champagne region of northern France. The term, however, has come to evoke wines made in the “methode-traditionnelle” around the world. In the blend Pinot Noir adds structure and brings a certain berry-fruit nose to the blend, while the Chardonnay fleshes this out and sets the wine up for aging, particularly when the base wine is aged in oak.
RIDGEVIEW - Launched in 1995 and nestled at the base of the beautiful South Downs with their chalky soils, Ridgeview boasts arguably England’s most state-of-the-art winery.

Ridgeview has celebrated some amazing accomplishments in its relatively short history, culminating in the trophy for ‘Best Sparkling Wine in the World, Decanter 2010’. Ridgeview wines are now proudly served at Buckingham Palace State Banquets and No. 10 Downing Street.
SUSSEX, UK - Situated in the south of England, the Sussex's climate is moderated by the Gulf Stream, a major Atlantic Ocean current that carries warm water from the Caribbean. Limited sunshine and cooler temperatures have led to sparkling wines becoming the most successful of English wines, some of which have been rated alongside the very best from Champagne. The classic champagne varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are particularly successful, creating outstanding sparkling wines carbonated through bottle fermentation in the méthode traditionnelle.
