Talk and Tour | Sharpham House and Vineyard
Tuesday 24 April 2012 - 12:00 until 14:00
This thousand year old farm consists of five hundred acres owned by the Sharpham Trust. The house, designed in 1770 by Sir Robert Taylor, overlooks the fields and wooded slopes above the River Dart, two miles downstream of the ancient market town of Totnes. Our aim today is to farm successfully in the modern context and to produce world class wine and cheese in harmony with the environment and the natural beauty of the Estate.
Sharpham Partnership is the trading name for the diversified activities run on the family estate. Situated on the banks of the River Dart near Totnes in South Devon, our vineyards, creamery and organic dairy farm have been producing wines and unpasteurised cheeses for over twenty years to local, national and international acclaim.
We will have a guided tour of the house, gardens and vineyard, with a brief talk about the Sharpham Educational Programme over a soup and salad lunch. We will then be treated to a free tasting of Shapham wines and cheeses.
