Rathfinny Rose

Rathfinny world-class English Fizz

Rathfinny Estate, a Sussex gem, is a relatively young vineyard established in 2010 by Mark and Sarah Driver with a vision to produce world-class English sparkling wines.

The vineyard occupies a breathtaking south-facing slope in the South Downs National Park, Sussex, strategically located just three miles from the English Channel. This proximity to the sea along with the chalky soil, similar to Champagne region in France, provides ideal conditions for growing grapes for sparkling wines. The long summer days and moderate rainfall contribute further to the quality of the grapes.

Rathfinny Estate is dedicated to sustainable practices and is the world's first grower-producer of sparkling wine to achieve the B Corp certification, highlighting their commitment to ethical and environmental responsibility.

The Estate meticulously tended over 90 hectares of vineyards planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier vines, sourced from some of the best Burgundy clones. These classic sparkling wine varieties thrive in the Sussex terroir. Additionally, they cultivate Pinot Gris grapes for their still Cradle Valley wine.

Rathfinny believes in minimal intervention winemaking and uses the Traditional Method for crafting their award-winning sparkling wines. Grapes are hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed, and matured on lees for an extended period to develop rich flavors. The low dosage used further emphasizes the natural taste of the grapes.

Overall, Rathfinny Estate is a passionate producer of world-class English sparkling wines, committed to sustainable practices and quality viticulture with meticulously sourced vines, all situated in a breathtaking location.
