Premium vintage sparkling wine brand Roebuck Estates can today unveil their summer events programme, featuring a range of unrivalled experiences in the heart of the Sussex countryside, just a stone’s throw from London (c. 59 minutes from London Waterloo to Haslemere, a short taxi ride away).

Established in 2013 with its first sparkling wine launched to huge acclaim in 2019, Roebuck perfectly marries together its vision to create premium sparkling wines from the finest English vineyard sites, leaving only the lightest footprint on the environment. Whilst its renowned range of sparkling wines have gone on to win multiple awards and are served within some of the world’s most prestigious settings, Roebuck has sought to minimise its environmental impact every step of the way, with conservation and biodiversity at the core of all that they do.

Throughout the warmer months from May to September, visitors can enjoy some of the most magnificent southerly views towards the South Downs via a visit to Roebuck’s home vineyard, close to the picturesque market town of Petworth in West Sussex. It is the jewel in Roebuck’s crown and home to their oldest vines, planted in 2006, with Classic Champagne varietals Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier leading the way and bringing elegance and finesse to Roebuck’s award-winning vintage sparkling wines.
