Sharpham Vineyard and Dairy, Totnes, Devon
This thousand year old farm consists of five hundred acres owned by the Sharpham Trust. The house, designed in 1770 by Sir Robert Taylor, overlooks the fields and wooded slopes above the River Dart, two miles downstream of the ancient market town of Totnes. Our aim today is to farm successfully in the modern context and to produce world class wine and cheese in harmony with the environment and the natural beauty of the estate.
Situated on the banks of the River Dart near Totnes in South Devon, our vineyards, winery and cheese dairy have been producing wines and a range of pasteurised and unpasteurised cheeses for over 35 years to local, national and international acclaim.
By producing our own Red Tractor assured Jersey cow’s milk from our own cows and growing a range of carefully selected cool climate grape varieties in the vineyard, we are in control of production from start to finish. The results are individual, hand made wines and cheeses which have a special character and flavour that relates to this unique position in the South Hams area of Devon.
