The Company: Top 50

Coming in at No.36 in the Top 50 of the World’s Best Vineyards (The World’s Best Vineyards Academy), Sussex based Ridgeview Estate Winery (Ridgeview) is a family owned producer of English sparkling wines. Founded 25 years ago, Ridgeview yields a quarter of a million bottles annually which are sold right across the globe.

The Deal: Maturing Assets

Ridgeview needs to invest 3 years into the creation of its product. As the business has grown it has found that this critical factor confounds many types of business lending. A meeting with PNC set a new path that has revolutionised how the business manages working capital.

The Achievement: A Fresh View

In 2019, Ridgeview completed the build of a new winery and cellar. With production set to double by 2021, the new financial platform from PNC sets the scene for even greater brand development and expansion into new markets.

We discovered an enlightened and refreshing approach from PNC which made perfect sense for our business. Their team was upfront, open and honest, and totally focused on getting the best outcome for us.
