One of the UK’s only biodynamic producers
Albury Vineyard is the result of Nick Wenman’s passion for quality wine. Nick planted the vineyard in 2009 having retired from the IT industry to fulfil his dream of owning a vineyard. Nick believes that key to the success of the wines is the vineyard’s commitment to organic and biodynamic principles.
How we found them/How Richard found them: Albury had quickly picked up a name for themselves as one of England’s best vineyards and with their strong ethics in organic farming and natural product, they were a natural fit for Wanderlust. We are very lucky to have their range of wines showing what well-maintained native Surrey vines can produce. Richard, Founder & Buyer
Albury Vineyard is situated on the southern slopes of the North Downs in the beautiful Surrey Hills, just outside Guildford. The vines are the traditional Champagne varietals of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, as well as some Seyval and Pinot Gris. Committed to producing organic fruit without the use of chemicals, they are focused on producing English wine of the highest quality; one still rosé and high quality sparkling wines.
Location: Surrey, UK Working with us since: 2019 Our pick of the best wine from this producer: Silent Pool Rose Interesting fact: Taking a vineyard to organic standards costs twice as much in ongoing vineyard management costs to keep on top of the rot, the bugs, the frosts just to mention a few of the issues. That’s how committed to organics you must be.
