Read our review of The Grape Variety, Chipstead & Dorking

The Grape Variety first opened in Chipstead in 2018 offering up a relaxed and cool place to hang out and something unique to Chipstead. Fast forward to December 2021, and the The Grape Variety has expanded and opened a branch in Dorking.

Wine is the main event, although the sharing platters are have established a fan-club of their own – and in the time  both venues have been open, they’ve gained a steady and loyal following. It’s rare this place isn’t bustling and busy.

Of course, there’s more than just wine on the menu – it’s open from 12noon, and during the day serves up a mean coffee (or tea), with an offering of cake on the side, natch! Cocktails, too, feature on the menu as well as beers and ales.

The wine shop has a great selection of red, white and rosé wine, plus Champagne and sparkling wine and spirits. There’s also a wine subscription service offering free delivery on orders over £100.

They also offer a party planning service.

If you’re keen to invest in wine, TGV director Thomas Johnson is experienced in helping clients build a bespoke wine portfolio to match their appetite for risk in the investment markets.
