Nestled at the foot of the picturesque South Downs in Ditchling, just a 20-minute drive from Brighton, Ridgeview is a second-generation family company dedicated to the production of the highest quality English Sparkling Wine. We welcome guests all year round for tours, tastings and relaxed drinking and dining by the vines, in the Ridgeview Wine Garden.

Founded in 1995, our dedication, passion and determination have significantly contributed to the international reputation and popularity now attributed to the English wine industry. Our wines are regularly used at receptions at No.10 Downing Street and have been served by the Queen at State Banquets.

The vineyard and winery, with our beautiful tasting room is open year round. A Ridgeview Tour & Tasting is the perfect way to delve behind-the-scenes and taste some award-winning wines!
