Raimes have employed the wine making expertise of Emma Rice and Jacob Leadly from Hattingly Valley. Having completed stints at Plumpton College Wine Center, Robert and Augusta work together with the talented Hattingley team in order to produce highly commended sparkling wine which truly reflects their vineyard traits and exquisite fruit.
In 2014 Emma Rice won UK Vineyards Association's Winemaker of the Year and then repeated this feat in 2016. She has also medalled in the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships. Having completed courses at Plumpton and then fine tuning her skill in Napa Valley and Tasmania she returned to the UK to focus on our cool climate sparklings.
Working alongside Emma Rice is well known English winemaker Jacob Leadly who has worked alongside Emma since 2011 when he joined Hattingly Valley so it's fair to say with their knowledge of the fruit produced from Hampshire that Raimes English Sparkling certainly hits the mark.
