Sandridge Barton celebrates three trophies at the prestigious WineGB Awards 2023.

Devon-based winery Sandridge Barton, the home of Sharpham Wine, has once again demonstrated its excellence in winemaking by securing three coveted trophies at the WineGB Awards 2023, solidifying its position as a leading English wine producer. 

Sandridge Barton’s remarkable achievements were recognised at the WineGB Awards 2023, also known as the Wines of Great Britain Awards, where it triumphed in multiple categories. The winery proudly received the prestigious accolades for Best Red Wine in the UK, Best Still Wine in the UK and Best Regional Wine. 

The Best Red Wine trophy was awarded to Sandridge Barton for its exceptional Pinot Noir 2020. This outstanding wine also won the Best Still Wine trophy, an accolade it shared with Gusbourne and they also received the trophy for Best Regional Wine from the West of England. 

Duncan Schwab, CEO and Head Winemaker at Sandridge Barton, said: “As a Devon-based vineyard, we are extremely proud to walk away from this year’s WineGB Awards with not just one but three trophies for our Pinot Noir 2020. This recognition demonstrates the dedication and passion of the entire team here at Sandridge Barton to produce unique, high quality wines.”

The Regional Trophy, highlighting the scope of styles and size of producers achieving notable wins, is awarded to the highest scoring wine in each region of the UK. Sandridge Barton’s accomplishment in this category showcases its commitment to the unique terroir of the Dart Valley and acknowledges the success of growing Pinot Noir grapes in the region. 

Ned Awty, interim CEO for WineGB added: “The 2023 Awards has given us a record number of entries and has embraced the wide scope and range of styles we now proudly produce in Britain. There are great results from small and large producers alike and from different regions across the country. We’re really proud of what this competition is setting out to achieve – to highlight and promote the excellence of our producers and wines.”

With over four decades of experience in producing award-winning English wines in Devon, previously under the Sharpham Wine brand, Sandridge Barton remains at the forefront of the industry. Their continued success illustrates their dedication to crafting exceptional wines that embody the unique marriage of climate, soil and grape varieties in this region of England.

The Trophy winners of the WineGB Awards were announced on 7th July at the Awards Luncheon and Ceremony, by Awards co-chairs Susie Barrie MW and Oz Clarke OBE, at Drapers Hall in London.
