South Lodge partners with Ridgeview to plant its roots in Sussex wine country

The hotel will plant 19,500 vines in May as part of the partnership with the sparkling wine company. 

 Luxury Sussex hotel and spa, South Lodge, will soon become the newest vineyard hotel in the UK as it confirms plans to plan 19,500 vines in May as part of a collaboration with local vineyard Ridgeview.

Exclusive Collection managing director, Danny Pecorelli, commented: “Ridgeview’s growing legacy of producing exemplary sparkling wine for over 25 years coupled with operating as a true family run business with strong sustainability pillars of people, environment and economics made the partnership choice quite simply, easy. Our visions are so well aligned in the wake of our recent B Corp accreditation that this project is more than just creating world-class sparkling wines, it is about exploring the long-term possibilities open to us when working closely with our supply chain to co-create a product from the very land our hotels are situated. We are extremely lucky to have the expertise of Ridgeview to support us on this exciting journey.”

The vineyard will span six hectares and include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varieties, with the first grapes expected in around two years' time. Up to 30,000 bottles of sparkling wine will be produced from the vines, with 10,000 exclusively for South Lodge and the wider Exclusive Collection hotels.  

South Lodge is keen to amplify the guest experience after launching an eco spa in 2019 and new tennis courts earlier this year.
