The public footpath crosses straight through the vineyards so if you are running or walking in the area, it’s a wonderful opportunity to walk into the vineyards themselves (being sure to shut the gates after you) and then through the production and tasting areas too....More

Alison's tour was informative and very interesting. Lovely wines and interesting to have that bit of understanding when tasting. The vineyard is set in beautiful surroundings and we were blessed with fantastic weather. We had a really lovely day.

Lovely family boutique vineyard. Always loved the Bachus but the Blanc de Blancs sparkling is a really lovely wine and this vineyard is surely going to become well known.

I totally agree with your other review, this by far the best English wine I have tasted. It's a hidden gem with wine across the range of most excellent quality, flavour and body. Both complex and delicate but most of all exceptionally drinkable and enjoyable....More

We had the Bacchus White Wine last night with Trout, it was suburb. The wine has a crisp clean elderflower aroma with a smooth taste, a very good wine from a local producer. By chance we met Alison in the fish restaurant and she is...More

The Albourne Estate Vineyard was established in 2010 and is already producing medal winning wines. The winery is very professionally run and the Estate has about 41,000 vines over several acres. The setting is very attractive and their white wines are great and reasonably priced.
