Husband and wife, Mark and Sarah Driver, established the Rathfinny Wine Estate in 2010 on a working arable farm with the express intention of producing some of the world’s finest quality English sparkling wines.
Their vision is about a great deal more than the production of outstanding Sussex Sparkling wine. Rathfinny aims to contribute something special to the unique spirit of place in this beautiful part of the South Downs, which has been farmed since medieval times.
Located on chalk rich soils in a perfect basin near the sea in Sussex’s South Downs it is an ideal spot.
Rathfinny 2018 Classic Cuvée is the third vintage of their classic, ‘house-style’ Sussex Sparkling, made in the Traditional Method from 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier grapes grown and hand-harvested on the Rathfinny Wine Estate.
