The Sharpham Partnership
Situated on the banks of the River Dart near Totnes in South Devon, The Sharpham Partnership 's vineyards, creamery and dairy farm have been producing wines and unpasteurised cheeses for over 30 years to local, national and international acclaim.
By producing their own Red Tractor assured Jersey cow’s milk on the farm from its closed herd of 65 Jersey cows, about 70 tonnes of cheese a year are handmade in the purpose-built cheese dairy.
The 10-acre vineyard lies between 12m and 25m above sea-level on south-facing, well drained slopes – perfect for growing a range of carefully selected cool-climate grape varieties, from which 70,000 bottles of wine are made each year. New World and traditional winemaking techniques are used.
Both the wine and cheese is made from start to finish at Sharpham, giving a flavour that reflects its unique position in the South Hams area of Devon. In the Regional and National competitions, Sharpham Wines have won trophies every year since 1992 and also never failed to win an international award every time the wines have been entered.
At the 2010 International Wine Challenge - the world’s most prestigious and influential independent wine competition, Sharpham’s Estate Selection won the UK’s best still wine.
