Hattingley Valley is a family-owned business located in Hampshire specialising in premium English sparkling wines.
Simon Robinson established Hattingley Valley in 2008 and alongside Emma Rice, they planned the modern, eco-friendly winery in Wield that was completed in 2010. It uses the latest technology and equipment from continental Europe, has sophisticated waste-disposal facilities and was the first UK winery to adopt solar power.
They currently manage over 24 hectares (60 acres) of vines across two well-situated sites primarily planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Using the traditional method for making their wines, a key element of their style is the subtle use of oak barrels to ferment a small proportion of the wines each year, as well as ageing on lees in stainless steel tanks. This helps to soften the wines before they go into bottles for the second fermentation. Their head winemaker, Emma Rice, has been awarded the prestigious title of ‘Winemaker of the Year’ twice.
Since launching its first release in August 2013, Hattingley Valley has been recognised in competitions across the globe and developed into one of the most respected producers of English sparkling wines in the country. It was awarded the ‘World Champion’ trophy for its 2011 Blanc de Blancs in the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2017. This is an exciting addition to the trophy cabinet which includes ‘Best Vintage Rosé’ awarded to the 2011 vintage, Hattingley’s first release of this style, by the same competition in 2014.
