Bride Valley Vineyards

After a celebrated career in wine – and inspired by the chalky, south-facing slopes of his wife Bella's Dorset sheep farm – Steven Spurrier joined the English sparkling wine revolution.

In 2008, he and Bella went to Burgundy’s famous Pepinieres Guillaume vine nursery, where they selected the finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier root stocks.

In 2011 the first Bride Valley harvest was picked. It sold out on release in 2014.

There are now 10 hectares under cultivation, producing three elegantly sparkling English wines in the heart of Dorset's breathtaking Bride Valley.

  • Wine
    A great wine is brighter and pinker than the pale Roses from Provence. The nose shows summer red fruits and the palate is nicely rounded with Bride Valley’s refreshing natural acidity on the finish.
  • Wine
    Nose showing some florally and white summer fruits, more depth of fruit than expected on the palate, attractively open for a very cool climate and the Granny Smith acidity refreshes the finish, definitely “Burgundian” with a good year or two in front of it.
  • Wine
    Produced using the classic Champagne grapes from an ampitheatre like vineyard overlooking Litton Cheney in West Dorset. England's first go at cremant, this wine is well balanced with flavours of whipped cream, cashew, green apple, pear, light nectarine and peach, lemon, lime. Creamy mouthfeel, aggressive but pleasant acid.
  • Wine
    Pale lemon-yellow in colour, with persistent tiny bubbles, elegantly lifted fruit and a textured dry finish. The ripe fruit gives it a full-bodied quality.
  • Wine
    Pinot Noir grapes undergo a pre-fermentation soak. Then, a slow pressing creates a full rose hue – as well as outstanding aroma and flavour. 10%-20% of Chardonnay perfects the colour, and adds an elegant vivacity. Released in autumn two years after the vintage.
  • Wine
    A stunning sparkling from the Bride Valley in the heart of Dorset. 100% Chardonnay, fresh zesty citrus and apple fruit with a n elegant fizz.
