Ridgeview Wine Estate

Win a 'tour and taste' experience for two

This competition is now closed

English wine is enjoying a huge surge in recognition and production, with fine English fizz in particular – comparable to that quintessential favourite, Champagne – taking the wine world by storm.

We’ve teamed up with Virgin Wines to offer one lucky winner a tour and taste experience for two, at the Ridgeview Wine Estate in Sussex – internationally recognised for the quality of its sparkling wine.

Located on the sunny slopes of the South Downs, Ridgeview is ideally situated for growing the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes used in producing traditional sparkling wines.

During your visit, you’ll gain an insight into Ridgeview’s wine production. You’ll discover the various processes that occur throughout the year – using state-of-the-art specialist equipment – on a guided tour of the vineyards, winery and cellars.

The tour is followed by a tasting of Ridgeview’s current releases, in the winery’s picturesque tasting room, overlooking the South Downs.

The experience starts at 11am, and lasts for approximately 90 minutes.

  • Guided tour of the vineyard
  • Explanation on the various vineyard processes that occur throughout the year
  • Guided tour of Ridgeview’s state-of-the-art specialist winery, equipment, and cellars
  • Tasting session

The closing date is 10 July. Terms and conditions apply.
