CLA South East: Ridgeview Wine Estate, Tour, Tasting and Lunch

English wines have been making their mark on the industry for some years now and are widely celebrated, at home and abroad. Join us for a talk, tour and tasting, followed by a networking lunch at Ridgeview Wine Estate, one of Sussex’s most accomplished vineyards.

Join us for a lovely morning and lunch at Ridgeview in the heart of Sussex. Ridgeview have been producing wines for more than 25 years and were awarded International Winemaker of the Year IWSC in 2018.

The event will start with a talk from Matt Strugnell, Ridgeview’s Vineyard Manger of 18 years about the Estate and how they have taken a leading role in building a thriving English wine industry over the quarter of a decade they have been producing wine.

After this we will have a guided tour of the winemaking process, followed by a tasting of the three Ridgeview sparkling wines with Mardi Roberts the Director of Communications of Ridgeview and a member of the founding family. We will then move to the Wine Garden for a delicious lunch whilst overlooking the picturesque South Downs.

N.B. The tour will be approx. 60-90 minutes, you must be able to walk for this length of time. This event will only run if Covid guidelines permit. If the event is cancelled, we will offer you a full refund.
