The miniscule Theale vineyard in Berkshire hardly compares to the vast vine clad hills and valleys of Champagne but quality wise it certainly does. Surprised? Well, the climate is quite similar, and we had another secret weapon - the man dubbed "King of Fizz" by The Independent. Mike Roberts RIP enjoyed a stellar reputation and his family continues the great work. The trophy cabinet at Ridgeview Estate in Sussex is fit to bursting, and its wines are served to visiting dignitaries at Buckingham Palace. No surprise then that he managed to convert our top quality, hand tended grapes into something so magnificent. The first vintage won Gold and a place in the world's Top 10 bubblies. 2010 is every bit as fine. Save for your next celebration.
