Art Gallery at Denbies Wine Estate
Denbies Wine Estate opened its Picture Gallery in 2002. It has been an inspiration for the hundreds of artists and photographers who exhibit in the gallery every week of the year. The Gallery hosts predominantly local artists and is located on the mezzanine level of Denbies reception area, offering a unique space which attracts thousands of visitors each year.
The Gallery is available to hire on a weekly basis.

ANNUAL BACCHUS COMPETITION
Denbies Wine Estate held its first Bacchus Award Competition in 2003 and continues to be the highlight of the art gallery located on the first floor at Denbies, hugely popular with visitors to the estate. It presents an opportunity for artists of all levels of experience and calibre to exhibit their work in a professional yet relaxed atmosphere. The competition is judged by a panel of five independent judges on the first day of the competition. The exhibition is then opened for one week to the public, who are also given the opportunity to choose their favourite piece. For details please download the links below:
