Sustainability Tour of Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking

 

Part of the Utilise Plus events and grant funding programme.

21 November 2018, 09:30 to 12:30, Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking.

Join us for a Sustainability Tour of Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking. Denbies puts sustainability at the heart of their business, from reducing their energy use by installing LED lighting, extending their woodland area by planting 1,600 oak and hazel trees, experimenting with bio-diesel fuels for their vineyard tractors, and much, much more!

Delegates will get to hear all about Denbies’ approach to sustainability with a Q&A session with their Chief Operating Officer, Jeanette Simpson. We’ll also be treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the winery, where they make around 300,000 litres of wine each year!

Light refreshments will be provided, though delegates will also get to enjoy a 10% discount in Denbies’ Conservatory Restaurant and Wine & Gift Shop once the event has ended.
