It's not surprising that this English wine's so special, given the exceptional site near the Dorset coast and the team behind it. Steven Spurrier is probably one of the UK's most highly regarded wine writers and critics. This wine's named in honour of his wife, Arabella, whose farm the vines are planted on.

Then there's a very skilled English winemaker behind it too, Ian Edwards, from nearby Furleigh Estate. Together with Steven, they've applied their considerable joint wine experience to the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier to craft a very impressive English sparkling wine indeed.

The Producer

Steven Spurrier and his wife Arabella are behind Bride Valley, located in West Dorset. After 50 years in wine – and inspired by the unique chalky soils on his wife’s Dorset sheep farm – Steven Spurrier decided to join the English sparkling wine revolution.
Three hectares were planted in 2009, rising to a total of 10 hectares in 2013 when planting was completed.

The Winemaker

The grapes are hand harvested and then taken to neighbouring Furleigh Estate where Ian Edwards vinified the sparkling wine in his state of the art winery. The rosé colour was achieved by macerating the Pinot Noir grapes for 24 hours before pressing. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and underwent malolactic fermentation to give it roundness to balance the crisp acidity. After blending the wine spends around 15 months on its lees before bottling.

The Region

Bride Valley Vineyard is located in the Bride Valley of Dorset, England in a village called Litton Cheney. They have 44,000 vines growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, planted across their 25 acres.
Bride Valley has been sustainably farmed for centuries and although the grapes are not certified organic, the vineyard continues to follow organic principles.

Pea & Goat's Cheese Risotto

Risottos pair well with both reds and whites so consider the other ingredients when choosing a wine match - the combination of sweet peas and salty goats cheese call for a vibrant white with lots of fruit flavour - try an English sparkling wine to match, their high acidity and aromatic flavours pair perfectly.

Crab Cakes

The delicate crab meat calls for a smooth, fruity, floral white which doesn't overpower the meat - try Bride Valley's Bella sparkling rosé to match. It naturally complements seafood dishes.
