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.

This is one of my absolute favourite places to be. I don't know if it's being surrounded by vines, but it just makes me smile. Lively walk around the vineyard and then the promise of a piece of cake for my children when we are done.

It was interesting to visit Denbies, the largest English winery. We started with a tour by land-train of the vineyards. It was a cold day and we were the only visitors taking this tour, which was a shame as it was very informative with very good explanation given by our guide Stephen. Great views and interesting history of the business... More

OK, but not all that inspiring. However, if looking for an introduction to English wine making then as good as any I would imagine for the larger commercial operation.

We visited the Denbies wine estate with some friends for the day and also for an overnight stay. We started off with the outdoor tour, which took us to the top of the hill overlooking the vineyard. It was the first out door tour of the year and we were lucky enough to have some good weather. The guide gave... More

My friends and I decided to book the winery tour. This is one of the worse tour we have ever done. We were welcome at the reception by a very rude woman who did not let us speak and rushed us to the cinema experience in the most impolite manner. We have never been treated like this. Very low standard... More

Been recently to several vineyards/distilleries and this visit was not one of my favourites. A 20 minutes filmed video about the story of the vineyard, followed by a guided tour and wine tasting. The first two were OK although a bit soul less and the tasting itself was disappointing as compared to Spanish or French wines, it is fair to... More

Though we had tried the local wines from Denbies on several occasions, we hadn't taken the time for a tour until this week. We chose the Classic Wine Experience, which paired a movie and a quick tour of the cellar with a three-wine tasting for about £10.95. The movie informed well on the area's geology, terroir, and the estate's history,... More

Last Saturday we decided to take some visiting friends to Denbies. We were not impressed with this tour at all. It was very short, the lady giving the tour kept walking off and talking without the whole group being with her so we couldn't hear what she was saying. The group was too large. When it came to the wine... More
