Sandridge Barton Wines

Sandridge Barton is the home of Sharpham Wine and sits in a south-facing bowl on the edge of the River Dart, the perfect terroir for growing grapes and producing renowned English wines. You can visit their on-site farm shop, book onto a guided or self-guided wine and cheese tasting or tour or dine at their onsite restaurant. Sandridge Barton Wines may appear to be a new face on the rapidly expanding UK wine scene, but the Devon based vineyard and winery has four decades of history and winemaking knowledge and experience. The name Sandridge Barton marks a new era for the celebrated Dart Valley winery, Sharpham Wine, which has literally moved lock, stock, and barrel (in fact, quite a few barrels) across the river Dart to the new state of the art winery, visitor centre café, nestled in a small valley adjacent to the 32acre Sandridge Barton vineyard which has been producing grapes for Sharpham Wine for over a decade.
