Susie Barrie MW and Peter Richards MW’s charity wines to help combat climate crisis
Susie Barrie MW and Peter Richards MW are getting ready to sell a unique set of English wines to benefit the environment and help tackle the 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.
The wines go on sale on 25 November 2021 via the Wine Society and Hattingley Valley’s website. All profits will be going to the Marine Conservation Society.
