Bee Keeping Demonstration with Wine

Join our bee-keeper Sergio for a fasciniating insight into bee-keeping followed by a glass of award-winning Albury Estate sparkling wine with honey cake.

10am - 12.30pm

This exclusive session starts with a short introduction from the vineyard about why we keep bees here at Albury, followed by an introduction into bees and bee-keeping with our bee-keeper Sergio. Learn about the equipment and tools used by bee-keepers, and get a glimpse inside one of our Albury hives. You'll be suited up as a bee-keeper yourself, and so able to handle the frames and enjoy a close-up view of the busy workers. After your demonstration, you'll return to the vineyard barn for a question and answer session with Sergio whilst enjoying a glass of our award-winning Classic Cuvée and some home-made honey cake. A member of the vineyard family will also be on hand to chat to you about the wine and vineyard life. Return home with a jar of natural Albury honey (15% discount on purchases will be offered).

Please wear socks and covered shoes - we will provide the protective clothing but you may want to wear layers as you could get a little warm! We regret that this event is not suitable for children
