Two Golds for Wyfold 2013, one for 2011, Trophies for 2010 and 2009 – that's quite a tally. This elegant vintage sparkler is from a two-hectare Oxfordshire estate. Meticulous vineyard work and winemaking ensure a fine mousse and long toasty flavours.
"A great example of one of the best English Sparklings. Gives you everything you want to celebrate"
Online Review For the 2010 vintage
In 2003 Barbara Laithwaite and Cherry Thompson planted 4,000 vines in a hectare of the Chiltern Hills. Just 10 years later, the 2009 took top prize at the prestigious Judgement of Parsons Green. Since then they have gained two Trophies, 91 Decanter points and Gold medals galore for both the Brut and the Rosé. What's more, US firm Pantone has just added English Sparkling to its repetoire of colours, basing the hue on Wyfold Brut. Barbara has now planted another hectare of vines next to the first. Crafted from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, this fine 2013 is testament to meticulous viticulture and the winemaking skills of the Ridgeview team and Barbara’s winemaker son Henry. Who needs Champagne when you've English bubbly this good?

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
