Simon Robinson, Hattingley’s founder, had always wanted to make something that was quintessentially British. When he heard a radio programme in 2000 on the rapidly developing English wine scene his Hattingley adventure began by turning over 25 acres of chalky, south sloping fields to vineyards in pursuit of his dream. With the expertise of award-winning head winemaker, Emma Rice, a state-of-the-art winery was built in 2010 which now produces some of the finest sparkling wines in England.
Hattingley Valley has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s most successful wineries, winning over 79 medals, 13 trophies and three Best in Class for its English sparkling wines. It is recognised for its innovative and dynamic approach to winemaking, with award-winning English sparkling wines enjoyed throughout the UK and exported internationally to 16 countries.
