Celebrate with Sussex Sparkling
2023 has been a phenomenal year for English Sparkling Wine. Following the Sussex PDO which provides a world-renowned stamp of quality for our Sussex wines, to B Corp certification and a brilliant harvest, there’s never been a better time to drink a glass of Sussex.
All vintage, low intervention and made in the Traditional Method on our single-site Estate, a bottle of English bubbly from Rathfinny is the perfect addition to the festive table this year.
Notoriously Brut in style and super food-friendly, Rathfinny sparkling wines will go down well with a Christmas meal or savour to raise a glass on New Year’s Eve. Gift boxes and vouchers are also available.

2019 Blanc de Noirs
Our highly acclaimed, signature sparkling 2019 Blanc de Noirs boasts enough depth to be the star of the show with the Christmas dinner, pairing beautifully with baked ham and cranberry sauce or roast duck and all the trimmings.
2019 Blanc de Blancs
From a limited production of the very best hand-picked Chardonnay grapes, our elegant 2019 Blanc de Blancs has a saline kick, influenced by our coastal vineyard location, situated just seven miles from the Seven Sisters Cliffs.
2019 Classic Cuvée
Our ‘house-style’ Classic Cuvée 2019 has a striking gold neck wrap that sparkles with festive celebration and represents ‘Rathfinny in a glass’. This vintage is a blend of 44% Pinot Noir, 41% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier grapes that have been grown and hand-harvested on our single-site Sussex Estate. Our Classic Cuvée is a versatile food-matcher, pairing perfectly with roast chicken and meaty fish like hake and monkfish or eggs benedict and gravlax.
Rosé isn’t just for summer. Rathfinny 2019 Rosé is the perfect party drink or dessert pairing. With just 5.3g/l of sugar, this sparkling is all about the fruit and salinity. Pair with the bright flavours of popular festive canapés such as duck and ginger spring rolls and fruit-based desserts like white forest roulade and cranberry trifle.
UNIQUE WINES & SPIRITS
Now and again, we produce a limited edition Seven Sisters Brandy and Gin and Cradle Valley still wines from our sister labels, using grapes grown and hand-harvested on the Rathfinny Estate. Why not surprise a loved one with a gift they weren’t expecting?
