Denbies – Dorking’s famous English Vineyard offers wonderful walks across the Downs as well as an educational tour or fun ride in the vineyard ‘train’, a good value meal in the restaurant and surprising shopping opportunities in their somewhat bizarre gift shop. Again, discount tours can usually be purchased online, but are worth the full price too. Reputed to be the UK’s largest vineyard – it’s worth booking a tour and finding out a bit about the history.
Stopham Vineyard, Pulborough. Educational and very enjoyable tour & tasting, a little more expensive than some vineyards, but the knowledge gained and size of the tasting glasses accounts for that. There is a good walk too, from Fittleworth to Stopham. The Vineyard offers fantastic views across the Downs, and the tour of the barns gives an informative overview of the wine making process. The White Hart, overlooking the 13th century bridge is a lovely local.
