Susie Barrie MW and Peter Richards MW’s charity wines to help combat climate crisis
Susie and Peter launched their Big English Wine Adventure back in 2016 when they made a traditional method sparkling Blanc de Blancs in conjunction with Hampshire winery Hattingley Valley.
They have since added a 2017 Meunier/Chardonnay sparkling blend and a 2018 red Pinot Noir made in collaboration with English producer, Danbury Ridge in Essex.
The charity partner for the project – the Marine Conservation Society – was chosen as part of a public competition run over five years. The Marine Conservation Society is a UK-based charity working to protect and restore the sea and its vital ecosystems, tackling issues from plastic pollution to over-fishing and habitat destruction.
