April blog – Surrey Day 2020

by / Wednesday, 29 April 2020 / Published in Uncategorized

Spring is a very important time in the vineyard as it sets the scene for the autumn harvest. Each season has its own characteristics and every year we welcome thousands of visitors to enjoy this wonderful process with us.

We are missing you, our valued customers, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to Denbies as things start to return to normal. In the meantime, to celebrate Surrey Day 2020 we have delved through the archives and have pleasure in bringing you a selection of our favourite images, both past & present.

The old Farmhouse which now forms part of the Vineyard Hotel.  The main characteristics of the Farmhouse remain untouched.

Originally used as farmland, the estate now homes different types of wildlife and animals!  This photo is taken from our annual Bacchus Marathon

To Our Valued Customers

In accordance with current government guidelines,  The Hatch on the Lawn takeaway refreshments and the Wine and Gift Shop (which operates an off-sales licence) are permitted to remain open during the current lockdown.  

Denbies Online Shop is also open for deliveries and click & collect.

All areas open to the public at this time are fully COVID compliant and risk assessments have been independently verified.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE

If you have made a reservation which may be cancelled due to current government guidelines, you will be contacted via e-mail by Denbies Events Team.  Reception will be closed, therefore the telephones will not be monitored

Please follow government guidelines at all times - information here

Unfortunately due to the current government guidelines, the main visitor centre has to remain closed. As the Denbies toilet facilities are located within the building, they are not classed as public toilets and therefore must remain closed. 

Denbies operates an open access policy for visitor to make use of the vineyard for recreational purposes. If anyone has any concerns regarding the limited facilities at this time, we are updating the website regularly and also communicating via email to visitors who have signed up on our website.

Thank you for your consideration and patience at this time.
