grape leavesA balmy summer evening, the gentle clip-clop of horses hooves and a sparkling glass of wine. A perfect way to celebrate the last lingering days of summer (weather permitting!).

Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking is offering this delightful way to tour their vinyards on Saturday 22nd August. Included in the price is a glass of sparkling wine and canapes, followed by a three course dinner in the gallery restaurant, which has panoramic views across the vinyard towards Box Hill.denbies hillside

If you’ve ever wanted to grow, or succeeded in growing your own grape vine and (in a good summer) harvesting plump bunches of grapes, then you’ll enjoy seeing how this thriving wine estate works. The vinyard was planted in 1986 and is now the largest in the country, garnering international recognition for its wines.
