Albury Estate Blanc de Noirs
This white sparkling wine from the 2018 vintage is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes and only the finest 1st pressings were used for this release.
The Blanc de Noirs has a delicate golden shine and has fruit aromas of strawberries and cacoa. Enhanced by over 30 months of lees ageing, the complex fruit flavours combined with a chalkiness give the wine a good body whilst retaining freshness. The balance is crisp with a long finish. To be enjoyed as an aperitif, with smoked salmon or with apple crumble.
We are proud to make our wines using the Great British Classic Method which requires the highest level of craft and quality.
Awards: GOLD (Decanter 2022, IEWA 2022)

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.
Albury Vineyard is the result of Nick Wenman's passion for quality wine. He planted the vineyard in 2009 and 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.
A world where butterflies and moths thrive and can be enjoyed by everyone, forever.
Butterflies and moths are a vital part of our wildlife heritage and are valuable as sensitive indicators of the health of our environment. The stark fact is that butterflies and moths continue to decline at an alarming rate, despite Butterfly Conservation's best efforts over the last 40 years. Our data shows they are both declining faster than most other well-documented groups of plants and animals, so our task is both daunting and complex. For many species, we know what needs to be done to halt the decline and support recoveries. In order to tackle these losses and achieve the aims of the charity, we have to dramatically increase our capacity and influence over the next few years. Our work will benefit other wildlife and the ecosystems upon which all life depends.
Falling numbers are an early warning to all wildlife that cannot be ignored. We have more than 40,000 members in the UK and 32 volunteer-run Branches throughout the British Isles. We employ over 80 people, including many highly qualified scientists, making us the world's largest research institute for butterflies and moths. We operate 36 nature reserves and we are leading or involved in 73 landscape-scale projects to conserve habitats.
