With a surge in demand for English wine, Sandridge Barton – ‘the home of Sharpham Wine’ claims their award-winning range of outstanding still and sparkling wines have never been so popular. Mark the occasion of English Wine Week on Saturday 19th June to Sunday 27th June by enjoying a glass of Sharpham Wine produced at Sandridge Barton’s brand new state-of-the-art winery made from grapes grown on the edge of the River Dart in South Devon.

Sharpham Wine’s head winemaker, Duncan Schwab comments: “We’re excited to celebrate our first English Wine Week at our new winery at Sandridge Barton. We’ve been busy producing some exciting new vintages such as Sharpham Estate Selection 2020, Sharpham Sparkling Blanc 2017 and our multi-award winning Sharpham Pinot Noir 2019.  All are ideal choices when relaxing in the garden in the sunshine or paired with a delicious dish from your favourite restaurant. Whatever you do, make sure you try English wine and buy local!

Duncan continues: “During English Wine Week Sharpham Wine’s popular visitor centre will continue to operate at its present location on the Sharpham Estate for wine tours and tastings, a great opportunity to learn more about wine. The on-site café, The Cellar Door is open 7 days a week; a place to relax with family and friends, sample a range of Sharpham Wines and enjoy the good food and fabulous view.

For summer in a glass, Sharpham Estate Selection is an absolute must. This light, dry white wine shows aromas of green apple, gooseberry and elderflower. The palate is very fresh and clean with a citrus driven acidity which pairs extremely well with fresh grilled fish and crab and easy drinking in the sunshine (£15.20 per bottle).

For a celebration choose Sharpham Sparkling Blanc, a broad and rich, traditional method English Sparkling Wine produced from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. It is driven by orchard fruits, lemon and warm pastry from the lees aging. The palate has a fresh and linear acidity with a soft mousse which pairs well with fish and chips or calamari(£25.50 per bottle).

During this time of year, opt for a lighter red such as Sharpham Pinot Noir. Ripe and youthful, this cool climate Pinot Noir is driven with wild strawberry and cherry with subtle spice. Full flavoured with juicy red berries and broad tannins, this wine is a great accompaniment to barbecued meat and mushroom dishes (£19.00 per bottle).

Previously located on the Sharpham Estate for over 40 years, Sharpham Wine recently moved its wine production to the new winery next to Sandridge Barton’s large vineyard on the edge of the River Dart. Sandridge Barton vineyard has been supplying grapes for Sharpham Wine for many years, since the vineyard was planted in 2008. Classic English white, red, rosé and sparkling wines are produced at this beautiful location in South Devon as a result of a happy marriage of soil, climate and topography known as terroir.

Sharpham Wine won several medals at the Wine GB Awards 2020 including prestigious Golds for its Pinot Noir and its Bacchus Stop-Ferment.
