Sharpham is set in one of Devon's most picturesque locations on the banks of the River Dart. The 10-acre vineyard is perfectly positioned, basking in the sun on the south facing slopes. A diverse range of English wines are produced, which consistently win awards at national and international level. It is also home to Sharpham Cheese who make a range of renowned handmade cheeses from the Sharpham Jersey herd, as well as some goat and sheep cheese. The cheese dairy has viewing windows and information boards so visitors can view the process.

Sharpham offers a range of tours and tastings, which include a scenic walk around the vineyard and along the riverbank followed by a tasting of a selection of the wines and cheese. You can also enjoy lunch at The Cellar Door Kitchen, the onsite al fresco café.
