Hattingley Valley is a family owned business located in Hampshire specialising in premium English traditional method sparkling wines. Simon Robinson established Hattingley Valley in 2008 when they planted their first vineyard with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Their custom-built, eco-friendly winery was completed in 2010. A key element to their style is the subtle use of oak barrels to ferment a small proportion of the wines each year.
Simon Robinson established Hattingley Valley in 2008 when their first vineyard was planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. They currently manage over 24 hectares (60 acres) of vines across two well-situated sites. Their custom-built, eco-friendly winery was completed in 2010. Equipped to the highest standard with the latest technology and equipment from continental Europe, it has sophisticated waste disposal facilities and was the first UK winery to adopt solar power.
At Hattingley Valley, they use 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 talented award winning wine making team is led by Emma Rice and Jacob Leadley, both of whom trained at Plumpton College.
Since launching its first release in August 2013, Hattingley Valley has been awarded across the international wine competition circuit including World Champion Vintage Rosé in The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships.
