The Rydon Guide to English Sparkling Wine is the first fully definitive and comprehensive guide to the sparkling wines of England and Wales and is endorsed by the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC)


This book covers everything there is to know about English Sparkling Wine and is the perfect companion for the connoisseur and amateur alike; explaining the background to winemaking in the UK, detailed guides to vineyards large and small, all the award-winning wines from each vineyard and the stories behind Britain’s leading winemakers, plus a complete directory of English sparkling wine vineyards in the United Kingdom and a full listing of all the award winners from both the IWSC and WineGB.

 Beautifully designed and photographed and with exclusive input from award-winning vineyards across the country including: CASTLEWOOD a boutique vineyard nestled beneath the ancient hill fort of Musbury Castle, RIDGEVIEW and NYETIMBER leading the explosion of award-winning English sparkling wines produced across their sites in the South Downs, SANDRIDGE BARTON from its stunning site in the South Hams in Devon, the LECKFORD ESTATE including the Waitrose Farm championing the best of British produce, COATES & SEELY served in royal palaces and Michelin-starred restaurants around the world, and new producers such as celebrity chef Michael Caines MBE from the vineyard at the historic Grade II listed Georgian LYMPSTONE MANOR overlooking the beautiful Exe estuary.

Divided into five regions, each entry is accompanied by a handy key summarising each vineyard’s unique facilities, for example whether they offer accommodation, have a restaurant, children and dogs are welcome, or even if you can get married there.
