We established Albourne Estate as a husband and wife team in 2010, a unique, modern 30 acre vineyard and winery overlooking the beautiful South Downs, near Brighton. Over the last ten years Albourne Estate has established itself as an innovative, quality-led English Wine producer, winning ‘UK Wine of the Year’ in 2015 with a Bacchus wine from our second ever harvest. The range and quality of Albourne wines has grown to include traditional and charmat method sparkling wines, white and red still wines and one of the first English Vermouths. Our grapes are exclusively grown, sustainably produced and hand-blended on site, each wine as individual, elegant and distinctive as the wildlife in our vineyards and on our bottles. Recently, the Estate opened a new Tasting Room with an expansive south-facing balcony enjoying panoramic views of the vines towards the South Downs National Park.
