Sharpham Wine has moved downriver to its new home in Stoke Gabriel, Sandridge Barton, and has launched a new website (sandridgebarton.com) and booking system for 2022 tours.

The new site winery visitor centre, which aims to officially open in June, has been built using sustainable and environmental practices. It’s at the heart of everything they do at Sandridge Barton, 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 which will 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. Sandridge Barton has banned the use of pesticides and will be increasing cover crop plantings for natural weed control and nutrients.

The new winery and visitor buildings has 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 their carbon footprint.

Circa at Sandridge Barton

Sandridge Barton is also pleased to announce that that the team at Circa in Exeter, led by head chef Rob Weeks, will be operating the new on-site restaurant.

Rob and his kitchen team aim to do justice to the world-class produce that surrounds us in Devon by offering an exciting menu that changes seasonally. With a philosophy of making as much in-house as possible, from charcuterie to vinegar, and the daily baking of fresh heritage sourdough, you can expect a varied seasonal menu showcasing the very best of Devon.

Focusing on small-scale producers, sustainability is at the heart of Circa’s ethos, from estate-reared South Devon beef, local organic veg and, of course, seafood from Devon’s world famous coastline and Brixham fish market, right on their doorstep.

In the restaurant, the emphasis is on creating a relaxed, unpretentious environment where guests can enjoy fantastic food in good company. Front of house manager Kate and her lovely team will ensure you enjoy a unique and memorable dining experience.
