Outing to Denbies wine estate

A party of nineteen from Trinity enjoyed a visit to Denbies wine estate near Dorking today (Saturday 13 August).  We began with a tour of the extensive estate by ‘train’, climbing up above the vines for a wonderful panoramic view, from Leith Hill and Dorking to Box Hill and the far distant hills.  Our guides provided the history of the Denbies estate from a 16th century farm to the present day prosperous wine estate, the largest in the country.

After lunch in the conservatory restaurant, and a chance to look around the gift shop, we continued with an indoor tour – starting with an excellent film giving us a fascinating insight into the workings of the vineyard and English wine production, with accompanying beautiful views of the Surrey hills.  Then finally, we were invited to taste a selection of Denbies award winning wines.

A very enjoyable day out for us all, and thanks to those who arranged it.
