Albury Organic Vineyard is situated in the Surrey Hills near the village of Albury and operates a fully organic and biodynamic wine estate. It was founded and managed by Nick Wenman in 2008 to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning a vineyard! Nick is joined by Alex Valsecchi, an experienced horticulturist who works with RHS Wisley, and serves as the vineyard manager.
Grown on the estate are the traditional Champagne varietals of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in order to create high quality, English sparkling wines. More recently, Albury Organic Vineyards has crafted a still rose wine, made from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, and this was served on board the Royal Barge for the Queen's diamond jubilee!
Located a stones throw from the vineyard are the Silent Pool Distillers, with whom the vineyard enjoys a friendly relationship. From a blend of their grapes, a brandy was created for Albury Vineyard known as the Duke's Reserve.
