Life is for celebrating – Ridgefest returns 24th August 2019
Following its unprecedented success in 2018, Ridgefest is returning on 24th August 2019 – and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before. Nestled amongst the vines of the Ridgeview Wine Estate, with a stunning backdrop of the South Downs, Ridgefest is the perfect summer day out, bursting with beautiful food, great live music and of course, award-winning English Sparkling Wine will be flowing.
2019’s line-up promises to delight all the senses; there will be delicious offerings from an eclectic selection of street food vendors, live bands and acoustic sets, DJ sets and a silent disco. Added to this is Ridgeview Sparkling Wine as well as unique drinks offerings in the cocktail lounge and tours of the vineyard and winery.Ridgefest is held at a winery, it is so much more than a traditional wine festival – like the ethos of Ridgeview itself, Ridgefest promises to be a fun, unique, fantastic festival for all. The festival welcomes around 600 guests, between 12noon and 10pm and tickets are available to buy from the Ridgeview website.
Founded in 1995, Ridgeview was one of the first wineries to be devoted to the production of English Sparkling Wine and Ridgefest will be an open celebration of the success that the family-run business has experienced in the last year. A pioneering force in the meteoric trajectory of English Sparkling Wine, Ridgeview was crowned IWSC Winemaker Of The Year Trophy 2018 and has charged into 2019 with London pop ups, international sales trips, local collaborations and a very special royal visit from HRH The Duchess Of Cornwall. Situated in Sussex on the South Downs of England, the winery is operated by the second generation of the Roberts family, who are pleased to welcome guests not just to Ridgefest, but operates tastings and tours all year round. Ridgeview wines have been served at four Buckingham Palace State Banquets and exported to 17 countries around the globe, making it the perfect choice for celebrating life at every opportunity.
