We are very proud to announce that Ridgeview’s CEO Tamara Roberts was awarded ‘Businessperson of the Year’ at a ceremony hosted by the Sussex Business Awards at the The Grand Brighton. 

“Hard work & bloody mindedness does pay off but only if you have the support of family, friends & a fantastic team” commented Tamara on receipt of the outstanding award. This follows on from a recent roll of fantastic achievements including Tamara being announced as the new International Wine & Spirit Competition – IWSC president for 2020. The appointment is a respected honour and Tamara is excited to be taking on this new role, particularly as the first English producer to do so.

‘My father started Ridgeview with the vision & ambition that England could produce sparkling wines to compete with the very best in the world, changing the course of the English Wine Industry forever. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate his legacy and the sparkling future that lies ahead for our industry’.

Ridgeview will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary in 2020 and over this quarter of a century we have built our reputation as a one of England’s leading sparkling wine producers which was illuminated when they were crowned ‘International Winemaker of the Year’ in 2018.

Alistair Crombie, MD of One Research, presents Tamara Roberts with the coveted “Businessperson of the Year” award at the 2019 Sussex Business Awards.
