About company

Ruth and Charles Simpson have been making award-winning wines at their stunning, southern French winery, Domaine de Sainte Rose, since 2002.  In 2012 they brought their expertise and savoir-faire back to the UK, establishing Simpsons’ Wine Estate in Barham, with an aspiration to create the finest quality Method Traditional English sparkling wine.  With 30 hectares of vineyards now established on the iconic chalk terroir of the North Downs and a state-of-the-art winery, the Simpsons saw their first harvest in 2016.  With a strong focus on provenance, Simpsons Wine now produces a highly-acclaimed range of exclusively estate grown still and sparkling wines, including the Roman Road Chardonnay, which won a Best in Show Trophy and Platinum Medal in the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards and the Chalklands Classic Cuvee 2016, which won a gold medal in the 2019 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.
