Bride Valley

United Kingdom, English Sparkling Wine

The Dorset estate of esteemed wine writer Steven Spurrier and his wife Arabella. The vines are planted in an amphitheatre-like vineyard overlooking the village of Litton Cheney, near Bridport. Following Steven's tests, the local geology here was found to be very similar to Champagne, perhaps rather unsurprisingly as the village of Kimmeridge is a short distance away with its geologically identical chalky soil to the Champagne region. The wines here are a real joy to drink, beautiful fruit comes off these rolling vineyards and is vinified at the neighbouring Furleigh Estate by the brilliant Ian Edwards.
