To achieve their goal, they knew they would have to grow the very best grapes from the finest vineyard sites in England. So, in 2013 they purchased their first parcel of land in West Sussex and Roebuck Estates was born.
THE ROEBUCK STORYNestled in the heart of the Sussex countryside, close to the picturesque market town of Petworth, Roebuck Estates was founded by two friends who shared a passion for great wine and had a clear vision: to craft exceptional vintage sparkling wines every single year that could be enjoyed all over the world.
The inspiration for our name comes from the wild deer often seen roaming in our beautiful surroundings.
We have enormous respect for our land and like the roe deer itself, we aim to leave the lightest footprint on our wonderful environment.
We are incredibly fortunate to have a full-time vineyard team made up of talented individuals who have worked all over the world. Using their wealth of knowledge and experience, they work tirelessly to produce the very best fruit for our English sparkling wines in each and every growing season.
Our six parcels of land span the beautiful counties of Sussex and Kent, and are known for their rich, fertile soils and exceptional quality fruit. At our estates we grow the classic trio of Champagne grape varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Each vineyard has been planted with carefully selected varieties and clones best suited to that land.
