Vineyard Event In Store Tasting

This exclusive session starts with a short introduction from the vineyard about why we keep bees here at Albury, followed by an introduction into bees and bee-keeping with our bee-keeper Sergio. Learn about the equipment and tools used by bee-keepers, and get a glimpse inside one of our Albury hives.

You'll be suited up as a bee-keeper yourself, and so able to handle the frames and enjoy a close-up view of the busy workers. After your demonstration, you'll return to the vineyard barn for a question and answer session with Sergio whilst enjoying a glass of Albury's award-winning Classic Cuvée and some home-made honey cake.

Tickets are priced at £35.00 per person for more information or to book please visit:

Vineyard Event Food & Wine Event

Furleigh Estate have teamed up with celebrity chef, Lesley Waters to offer a fabulous evening including a cookery demonstration and a three-course dinner matched with Furleigh Estate still and sparkling wines.


Well known for her regular television appearances on Ready Steady Cook, Great Food Live and This Morning, Lesley is also a former Head Tutor of Leith's School of Food & Wine. Originally a Londoner born & bred, Lesley was quickly charmed by the beauty of the West Dorset area and inspired by the superb quality of the fresh local produce available right on her doorstep. She likes to cook seasonal food whenever possible and her simple, modern style creates dishes that are easy to recreate with stunning results. 

The evening starts with a sparkling reception. Guests will be greeted by Lesley and Rebecca with a glass of Furleigh Estate fizz and canapés prepare by Lesley and her team.  They will then move to the cookery school where Lesley will cook a three course dinner before our eyes. Rebecca will talk about the wines you are about to enjoy and why they have been chosen to go with each course. Each course will then be served with matching Furleigh Estate wines. Finally, at the end of the evening, guests will leave with a full tummy, smiles on their faces and a goody bag containing recipes cards and an exclusive Furleigh Estate wine chiller.

£85 pp places are limited, to book or for more information please visit: https://www.furleighestate.co.uk/event/174/an+evening+at+lesley+waters%E2%80%99+cookery+school
