Opera at the Vineyard for Cancer Research UK

Last weekend, we held an opera event at the vineyard to raise money for Cancer Research UK. The event was a huge success and we raised over £1,500 for the charity.

Musicians from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama entertained 70 people with wonderful opera classics, which they were able to perform outside in the sunshine. Delicious canapés were served by Four Gables Fine Dining, and guests enjoyed Albury wine as well as local beer kindly donated by Tillingbourne Brewery.

Thanks to some extremely generous donations from local businesses, we raised £660 from raffle ticket sales alone!

We would like to thank everyone who helped make the event a sucessful and enjoyable one, and well done for raising so much money for Cancer Research UK! We hope to hold another opera event at the vineyard next year.

Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons chooses Albury Wines

Created by celebrated chef Raymond Blanc OBE, Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons is renowned for offering one of Britain's finest gastronomic experiences.

We are therefore delighted that our organic Silent Pool Rosé 2014 and Monty’s Pet Nat have been chosen to be included on their wine list, amongst some of the finest wines in the world.

Silent Pool Rosé is an elegant, dry, fresh, still Rosé wine made from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. It has aromas of strawberries and cream and characteristic summer fruit flavours with a long finish.  It was recently awarded a gold medal in the English and Welsh wine competition.

Monty Waldin, an expert in biodynamic wines, teamed up with Albury Organic Vineyard to produce Monty’s Pet Nat, which is the UK’s first Petillant Naturel. It is a natural fresh sparkling wine with a cloudy sediment which adds to its character. It has a ripe pear, zesty and citrus nose, and is dry on the palate with notes of fresh lemons and a hint of mandarin in the finish.

Why not visit Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons for a gastronomic treat accompanied by our award winning wines.
