Passing through Denbies vineyard on the Pilgrims’ Way you may notice that grape picking has started.
The first day was Thursday 7 September which is the earliest in the estate’s history.
Concerns about a late frost and a hot June followed by poor weather have proved unfounded. “The quality is quite outstanding,” says Denbies CEO Christopher White.
Denbies lies below Box Hill with south facing slopes enjoying a micro climate.
Accommodation for walkers is available at The Farmhouse.
