Albourne Estate Logo - 10 Year Anniversary

Albourne Estate is a family-owned boutique vineyard and winery overlooking the beautiful South Downs, just 8 miles from Brighton. We craft small quantities of exciting and distinctive still and sparkling Sussex wines using only our own carefully grown hand-picked grapes.

Due to the current coronavirus crisis our 2020 programme of Events, Tours & Tastings is on hold.   If you already have a booking for an Event or Tour that is cancelled in due course we will either reschedule or refund your ticket price.   We will contact you via email.   Our thoughts go out to everyone effected by this crisis and we wish you and your family well.  We remain able to deliver wine for any orders placed via our website and as a small family business we are very grateful for your support at this time.
