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.

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.
