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 fulfill 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, together with excellent winemakers and his talented Estate Manager Alex, one of the few female vineyard managers in England. Her expertise is vital to the running of the vineyard, and her dogs Attila, Ulisee and Mildred are well loved by visitors!
Nick's daughter Lucy now manages marketing and events with Becky to help with admin, and Alex has been joined on the vineyard by vineyard manager Dominic and apprentice Declan.
Albury Vineyard is situated on the southern slopes of the North Downs in the beautiful Surrey Hills, just outside Guildford on the A25 towards Dorking. The vines are the traditional Champagne varietals of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, as well as some Seyval and Pinot Gris. We are committed to producing organic fruit without the use of chemicals such as herbicides and fungicides, and produce English wine of the highest quality; a still rosé and quality sparkling wines.
"Ever since I was old enough to drink wine I have always dreamt of owning a vineyard. It's taken me more than 40 years to get there but I'm now lucky enough to have fulﬁlled my dream. Working with a passionate team producing great wine in the beautiful Surrey Hills. What more could I ask for?"
Nick Wenman, Vineyard Owner
We are a family-owned vineyard run by Nick and daughter Lucy, along with vineyard managers Alex and Dominic, and not forgetting Attila and Ulisse, our vineyard dogs.
