Roebuck Estates was born out of a sheer passion for great wines, an earnest desire to lay down roots in the stunning countryside of Sussex and to champion great homegrown English produce. We constantly strive for perfection in our wines by using estate-grown fruit in combination with terrific winemaking to create wonderfully individual wines.

We have big dreams and are committed to producing exceptional quality sparkling wines. To do this we are single-minded in building a portfolio of only the finest vineyard sites, managed by a supremely competent vineyard team, to produce world-class fruit.
