Albury Organic Vineyard is hidden away on the southern slopes of the North Downs in the beautiful Surrey Hills, just outside Guildford.
Originally planted in 2009 by owner Nick Wenman, the vines are the traditional Champagne varietals of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier from which the expert winemakers produce premium quality sparkling and rosé wines.
The team are committed to producing organic fruit without the use of chemicals such as herbicides and fungicides, and managing this process is Alex Valsecchi who is one of the few female vineyard managers in England.
Recently featured on the BBC's Countryfile, the vineyard's first vintage of Silent Pool Rosé was famously served on the royal barge Gloriana during The Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.
Albury's sparkling wines are produced using the same methods as Champagne, with secondary fermentation taking place in the bottle over at least two years to give the wine its distinctive character.
Voted Drinks Producer of the Year in the 2016 and 2018 Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards, Albury Organic Vineyard's sparkling wines have won international wine awards and are featured on the wine lists of several Michelin starred restaurants including Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, Tom Kerridge’s The Hand and Flowers, The Black Swan at Oldstead and Chez Bruce in Wandsworth.
