“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?”
We planted the vines at Albury in 2009 after I had retired from the IT industry to fulfil my dream of owning a vineyard. The Key to our success has been our commitment to organic farming, together with excellent winemakers and talented vineyard managers including Alex, one of the few female vineyard managers in England.
The vineyard is known for its flagship Silent Pool Rosé which was served on the Royal Barge to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Albury Estate sparkling wines have since won numerous international wine awards and are now featured on the wine lists of some of the country’s best restaurants.
Albury is a small, boutique, family-run business offering relaxed, fun, informative visitor experiences whether you know a lot about wine, or nothing at all! Visit us for a tour and tasting, or simply relax on our patio with a chilled glass of wine.

From Guildford, take the A25 to Dorking. Head over Newlands Corner and turn off the A25 signposted ‘Silent Pool’. Follow the track that leads up along the right-hand side of the Silent Pool car park and you will find the vineyard at the top of the track. Parking is available outside the visitors’ barn.
The nearest mainline is Guildford (around 40 minutes from London) which is about 10 minutes by taxi from the vineyard. A taxi rank is available at Guildford station, and Uber is also available. Gomshall and Clandon are both slightly closer but are small village stations and you will need to pre-book a taxi.
