Sharpham Estate, Totnes

Sharpham Estate is made up of 500 acres of stunning farmland which produces award-winning wines and cheese and boasts beautiful views of rolling Devonian countryside.

This majestic and spectacular vineyard overlooks the River Dart and is just two miles outside of the old market town of Totnes, Devon. Having produced nationally and internationally acclaimed wines and cheeses for nearly 35 years, one can spend the day and appreciate this impressive estate. Take a walk amongst the lush vineyards and sample the tasty delights Sharpham has to offer.

Before tantalising your taste buds, you can enjoy the pretty vineyards at your own pace on a short or long self-guided walk. Upon entry, you can take a map to help you navigate through the farmland and show you the best walks that take you down to The River Dart, where you can enjoy the peaceful and natural beauty of this waterside scenery. For a more in-depth look into the estate and vineyard, try the Vine to Wine tour which demonstrates the processes of how this award-winning wine is created, plus giving you a chance to taste five of them on the way!

Sharpham offers a variety of tasting experiences to sample and enjoy. Take a bite of three of the dairy’s beloved cheeses alongside sweet chutneys and savoury biscuits, including the 2018 International Cheese Award winners; The semi-hard, unpasteurised Sharpham Rustic, made with Jersey cow milk and The Sharpham Ticklemore Goat, a pasteurised semi-hard goat cheese made with vegetable rennet. Wet your whistle and try four samples of perfectly crafted wines, all bursting with fruity tones and aromas – the Sharpham Sparkling Blanc is the 2016 Gold Winner of The South West Vineyards Associations and is highly recommended!

After you’ve explored the estate, you can purchase your favourite products at The Cellar Door as well as relax in its delightful alfresco kitchen café. The menu is changed regularly as the chefs pride themselves in creating unique and delicious dishes using fresh, seasonal produce so there is always something new and exciting to chop down on.

Whether you are a connoisseur of fine wines and cheese or someone wanting to try something new or just seeking beautiful rolling countryside, Sharpham Vineyard is quintessential day in Devon.
