Happy 90th Birthday, Your Majesty!
|Ockenden Manor and Ridgeview Estate toast HM The Queen’s 90th birthday with a Michelin starred pop-up among the vines|
|In celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, two West Sussex secrets are coming together to host an exclusive lunch party on Sunday 12 June; Ockenden Manor’s Michelin starred dishes will combine with plenty of Sussex sparkling wine to create a pop-up amid the vines on the Ridgeview Estate.|
|Producers of award-winning English sparkling wine, Ridgeview Estate is set at the foot of the South Downs just a few miles from Ockenden Manor. The estate’s sparkling wines are well-known by Her Majesty; in October 2015, the Grosvenor Blanc de Blancs 2009 was served at the state banquet held at Buckingham Palace as part of the state visit by Chinese Premier Xi Jingping.|
|The rolling vineyards of Ridgeview will be the perfect setting for a lunch to remember. Stepping out from the Restaurant at Ockenden Manor, which has held a Michelin star for thirteen years, Head Chef Stephen Crane and his team will craft a one-off lunch – a modern take on a medieval style banquet.|
|Guests will take their seats at long tables brimming with flowers and bunting for a three course feast, cooked live on the vineyard and each matched to a different Ridgeview sparkling wine. This is Ockenden Manor and Ridgeview’s take on the great British street party; guests can expect a series of scrumptious dishes and plenty of fizz – the perfect way in which to raise a glass to Her Majesty’s big day.|
|Tickets are £125 per person for a three course lunch with matching sparkling wines. From 12.30pm, adults only.|
