Producers of fine quality English still and sparkling wines.

Blackdown Ridge Estate sits at the highest point in the Sussex Weald, enjoying extraordinary views over the South Downs National Park. Here we have planted vines to create fine English wines, taking advantage of the superb location and conditions. The soil of the Sussex Weald shares much with the terroir of the Champagne region of France, and this influenced our plantings of the classic sparkling wine varietals: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The grapes planted for our range of still wines include aromatic Bacchus for our single varietal English white wine, as well as Triomphe d’Alsace and Sauvignon Blanc.
