From Grape to Glass – Visit Albourne Estate, West Sussex

20 August 2021 at 09:30 - 16:30


We have teamed up with Suzanna Pinder, Travel Counsellor, to offer a “hassle-free” day visit to a superb West Sussex Vineyard Estate with transport all-in.

Starting with a walk around the beautiful 30 acre Vineyard, learn about many of the challenges and joys of growing grapes for wine in England. Visit the winery to learn about how the wines the wines are made, with an explanation of the processes involved in both still and sparkling wine production. Lastly, enjoy a guided tasting of some of Albourne Estate’s fabulous wines and a light lunch in the lovely Tasting Room or Terrace overlooking the vineyards.

Albourne has an impressive line-up of Still and Sparkling wines and a Vermouth; the Tasting will include both Still and Sparkling wines.

Alison Nightingale, owner and wine-maker, will be on hand to share her substantial knowledge and enthusiasm for English wines. Alison won the coveted UK Vineyards Association Trophy for UK Wine of the Year in 2015, and continues to win many International Awards for her Still and Sparkling wines.
