Sharpham Vineyard - Boutinot

Meet the Producer

An English gem in Devon, Sharpham have been making wine for over 40 years and are recognised for producing some of England's most outstanding wines. A recent move from their original home on the Sharpham Estate across the river Dart to Sandridge Barton, just south of Stoke Gabriel, has seen the opening of a new state of the art winery. Spread across 450 acres, the site is one of England’s most picturesque vineyards.

The estate produces stylish, fruit-forward wines from the Madeleine Angevine and Bacchus grapes. Traditional and new world techniques are employed resulting in a range of distinctive and carefully balanced wines with intense fruit flavours and aromas.

A Note on Sustainability

Sustainable environmental practices are at the heart of Sharpham, with inclusion into the higher level Countryside Stewardship Scheme and a membership of Sustainable Wines of Great Britain. Work is currently being carried out across the estate to protect the area's plant and wildlife species and ensure their agriculture isn't too intense or invasive. This includes tree planting, creation of wildflower meadows and the installation of bird and bat boxes to protect rare species. They have banned the use of pesticides and will be increasing cover crop plantings for natural weed control and nutrients. The new winery and visitor buildings have been designed with sustainability in mind and have solar panels, rainwater harvesting, air source heat pumps and spring water extraction used throughout the site, in order to further reduce carbon footprint.
