In the winery, we employ both New World and traditional techniques to best develop our unique regional characteristics. Our tally of International Awards confirms our position as one of England's foremost quality wine producers. We invite you to visit, sample, and make up your own minds about our fine English wine. « less

I booked the Sharpham Experience for a friend's 50th birthday treat and myself. £65 each for the guided tour, says 4 hours but there was no pressure to set off on time or to rush. You start the day with coffee and welcome then a short walk to Sharpham House, a stunning house and gardens. Then a fully informed walk... More

Just had a lovely day out at Sharpham estate. Elke showed us round the lovely house and the vineyards. We tasted lots of the estates wines as we went round. Elke is very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the wines and she made the day really interesting. The lunch was very nice and they catered for not being able to eat... More

Took the 'olds' for a meander - hadn't been before. We paid for the walk and a wine and cheese tasting (Silver package). It was a nice day and the walk was pleasant, suitable for older visitors and you do it at your own pace We each received a taster of the wine we chose and a taster of cheese... More

We had a great time on the Sharpham Experience tour. The heavens had opened after weeks of hot sunny weather but this meant that we had an extended tour of the amazing house and most of the wine tasting was held in the luxury of the drawing room. We tasted 8 wines and were even served some of the home-distilled... More

Sharpham Estate is easy to get to if you're driving from Totnes, and a taxi will get you there for £10-11 if you plan to sample some wine. When you get there, you don't have to sit in the cafe, nor are you pressurised to buy food – we took a bag of our own supplies and used the tables... More

A long drive along extremely narrow lanes to a beautiful location on a hillside overlooking the River Dart. Given the remote location, we were surprised how popular it was. We went for lunch, and had the selections of smoked fish and of their own cheeses. Excellent. Service was very slightly patchy, and a little offhand, but this place is definitely... More

We had a superb lunch yesterday, and cannot complement the chefs enough! The backdrop to the al fresco dining is beautiful, so it was especially appreciated as the weather was really nice. There was no rush, and the staff were pleasant and helpful despite being very busy. After our leisurely lunch during which we sampled their wine (I would recommend... More
