Sharpham Vineyard and Cheese Dairy – Located on the banks of the River Dart, near Totnes in South Devon, the Sharpham Estate consists of a 1000 year old farmstead crowned by Sharpham House, built in 1770 to a design by Sir Robert Taylor. The house overlooks a vineyard and meadows running down to the river. Come and try the Sharpham Experience where you can explore the natural beauty of the Sharpham Estate with its vineyard and riverside walks; sample award winning wines and cheeses and learn about the fine arts of making wine and cheese. The Sharpham Shop sells produce along with a mail order facility. There is a self-directed 30 minute Trek and Taste tour of the vineyard with wine and cheese tasting available ranging from £2.50 per person to £8.95 per person as well as a guided two hour tour priced at £12.95 each.
