History

The Denbies Estate was purchased by Thomas Cubitt in 1850, and it remained in his family for 130 years, during which time it has hosted many royal visits, the first by Prince Albert a year after Cubitt's acquisition. On this visit, the Prince planted some rare conifers that can still be seen today. In 1984 Adrian White bought the estate and the vineyard was planted in 1986. Since then, Denbies has been family owned and run and is now one of the UK's largest wine producers. The company competes on an international level and has collected multiple rosettes for its sparkling wines, as well as proudly receiving the UK's first ever gold award for rosé. Nowadays, it still operates as a successful vineyard and has latterly become a beautiful wedding venue.

Facilities

Unique extras provided at Denbies are a wine-tasting session or a ride on the vineyard train, perfect to entertain your guests while you are having wedding photos taken or a great activity in between wedding breakfast and evening reception activity. As a complimentary wedding favour, Denbies includes a voucher for each guest, to return and enjoy a free wine tour at their leisure.

Reviews

  • James and Talia – 05/11/2016

    Just wanted to say thank you Megan, Steve and the rest of the teams over there for making our wedding truly fantastic, from start to finish the Denbies team was perfect and we could not have asked for the day to run any more smoother from your side.

    Everything flowed and Steve is a true perfectionist and if you could pass me his email i would like to thank him also.

    Can’t remember if I ever saw it on your website but if I can ever write a recommendation of Denbies I really would. Fantastic venue, staff, food and obviously wine.

  • Bernice and Ross - 08/10/2016

    I need to send our thanks to Megan, Nick and the amazing team at Denbies who made our wedding day run perfectly. We had absolutely no issues at all, everything went to plan and the venue exceeded our expectations, the place looked amazing.

    Our guests had a fabulous time, we have received nothing but great feedback from the day. The food was exceptional, the service from the waiting team was great, nothing was too much trouble.

  • Lorraine and Roger – 10/08/2016

    I just wanted to say thank you to you and the team at Denbies for doing such a great job for our wedding! Roger and I had an unforgettable day which was absolutely wonderful. All of our guests enjoyed themselves as well - I've heard 'best wedding ever' from many of them, which is a pretty high accolade!

    Fergus from the catering team deserves a special mention - he was so helpful and attentive from the time I arrived to meet with him the day before all through the wedding. Please pass on our thanks to him and the team, he did a great job - helping unload the car, string up fairy lights, and follow up on all the other requests during the day. Many thanks Megan to you and all of the team.
