Sharpham Wine & Cheese

Lonely Planet review

Here row upon row of vines line up on sloping hills more reminiscent of Chablis than south Devon. Tours and tastings range from self-guided rambles (£2.50), via sampling wines and cheeses (£7 to £10), to full blown tours and tutored tastings (£15 to £55). The award-winning alfresco cafe dishes up gourmet air-dried hams, smoked fish and (inevitably) superb cheese and wine – book. The vineyard is 3 miles south of Totnes, signed off the A381. A more atmospheric option is to hike from town along the Dart Valley Trail.
