27 April, 2016

English sparkling winery Ridgeview has announced it will feature in Michel Roux Jr’s series The Craftsmen’s Dinner.

In conjunction with The Balvenie Distillery, the show features stories from remarkable producers and is being aired exclusively on YouTube.

The Roberts family and their business in Ditchling, Sussex, is one of only six companies included. In their episode head winemaker Simon Roberts guides Michel Roux Jr through the sparkling winemaking process from vine to glass.

Simon Roberts said: “It’s an incredible privilege for me, the family and our staff here at Ridgeview to be invited to participate in such a wonderful series.

“Getting together with like-minded people who strive to produce something of excellence with a focused passion was incredibly affirming.”
