"This is the first time we have released our Bloomsbury wine in magnum format, so it’s amazing it has been awarded this incredible accolade.

"The Sommelier Wine Awards are special for us as this is voted by the people representing and promoting our products to the consumer.

"Bloomsbury is our most popular wine, so always get to get such positive recognition by your peers.

"There is nothing better then seeing customers celebrating in restaurants with our sparkling wine.”

The wine estate in Ditchling Common was founded in 1995 by Chris and Mike Roberts when the first vines were planted.

It is open seven days a week for visitors.
