Hattingley Valley was established by Simon Robinson in 2008 when the vineyard was planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The winery was completed in 2010 and today it is a family owned and managed business located in Hampshire specialising in premium English sparkling wines using the traditional method.

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.

Come and discover the secrets of our multi award-winning English sparkling wine. Set in the heart of Hampshire’s countryside, a guided tour and tasting makes a great day out!

We will give you an in-depth tour of our state-of-the-art winery explaining the production processes involved to create traditional method sparkling wine followed by a tasting from our current range with the opportunity to purchase from the cellar door shop. The experience usually lasts around 2 hours and our friendly Hattingley Valley expert will answer any questions you may have throughout the guided tour.
