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.
