Albion Stone sponsors the Stone & Wine event

09/09/2019 • News

British stones define our built heritage and are synonymous with longevity, elegance and quality which stand the test of time. A less well-known resource of Britain’s geology is its vineyards.

Stone Federation Great Britain and Arup invite you to join us for an exclusive event where Crosland Hill Hard Yorkstone, Darney Sandstone, Mandale Derbyshire Fossil Limestone, Portland Limestone and Scoutmoor Yorkstone will be presented by Arup geologist and architectural stone expert, Paola Blasi. She will draw from her 30 years of experience in this sector and interest in wine.

In her talk, Paola will lead you on a journey to discover the geology, quarrying history and architectural uses of these unique British stones. She will reveal how the place of origin of these exquisite architectural stones is also characterised by the presence of fine vineyards and cheesemakers.

Following the seminar stone experts from Albion Stone, Hutton Stone, Johnsons Wellfield, Marshalls and Natural Stone Sales will be on hand to introduce you to their stones and associated wines and cheeses.

We hope you can join us. 

Due to limited space, places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. Please register your interest: ttp://
