The Denbies Estate, based in Dorking, Surrey, has been family owned and run...

The Denbies Estate, based in Dorking, Surrey, has been family owned and run since 1984. Denbies vineyard was planted in 1986, and since then has become one of the largest wine producers in the UK. Denbies core business is agriculture and we are pleased to be able to offer visitors an insight into wine production in the UK. Denbies wine now competes on an international level, including multiple gold awards for sparkling wine production, the first ever gold for an English rose wine and most recently an international gold for Denbies Noble Harvest Dessert wine. We are honoured over the years to have welcomed several members of the Royal family to the estate, completing the historical connections which date back to Prince Albert in 1851. The Surrey Hills is a beautiful area to live in and while you are visiting do take advantage of the surrounding areas, including 7 miles of public footpath which trail throughout the vineyard. Thank you for visiting Denbies Wine Estate. If you have any questions during your visit, our staff will be very happy to assist you in any matter. We very much hope that you will enjoy your visit.

Very few of my reviews are so negative - but they are always justified. I love wine. I have been on a number of tours on different estates before. But ..... 50 minutes "train" ride most of which was thru trees. Stopped twice: 1st time to be given the only interesting piece of vineyard info regarding the geology. 2nd time... More

For a non wine drinker an odd choice of place to visit but went on recommendation of friend who said views were good. Booked on for the trip around the vineyard for £7 a head (extra if you wanted a glass of bubbly). Interesting but felt quite expensive for what it was. Views over Boxhill & Dorking certainly lovely. Stopped... More

My wife purchased a taster tour with food this lasted about 1hr, probably about 20mins was taken up by a very informative film about the history of the estate, after that we were taken on a tour of the distillery but being a Saturday there was no activity we then went for the wine tasting, we were given three small...

We booked 1 night stay at the B&B. It was absolute faultless, clean rooms, spotless bathroom, all amenities perfect. The breakfast was outstanding. As for the wine estate I was pleasantly surprised at how open the estate is to walk around. The town is also just a 15 minute stroll from the estate. We had beautiful weather and spent all... More

We met for lunch with various member of our family in the conservatory, it was very noisy and busy. We managed to find a table large enough to seat us all together, (6 adults and 2 children) not a good varied selection and the food tasted and looked as if it had been on display for some time. The grandchildren's... More

Great views, good food, and a very tasty sparkling white wine. Some staff in the gift shop were a bit snobby but other than that a good day out.

‪Did the tour on land train, ate at the restaurant and now on the wine tour itself. We were told to stop laughing on the land train (we are 30-50 year old adults) and that was just the start. I have never been on a wine tour this flat, dull and drawn out. 20 mins watching a video in an... More

well organised enjoyable and wonderful day out. Enjoyed the morning watching the cheese-making double act followed by the lunch with as much wine as you wish to drink. Really interesting afternoon of learning and wine tasting! The wine tasting finale was absolutely worth. Made more fun watching the other participants. highly recommended!!
