Our story began in 2012 when Caroline and Lance Whitehead bought the Calancombe Estate in South Devon, located between Dartmoor and the coast and with origins that can be traced back to the 16th century. Blessed with a unique microclimate, south-facing slopes and free draining soil, the Estate is ideally suited for our award-winning wine production.
Our aim is to produce the finest quality sparkling and still white, red and rosé wines from grapes grown exclusively on our Estate. We undertake all aspects of the winemaking from hand-picking the grapes to bottling and labelling the wines in our winery purpose built on the Estate.
We are delighted to announce that Calancomnbe Estate will be open for tours, tastings and other activities from 24th June 2021. Visitors will be welcome to explore the vineyards, orchards and our newly built Visitors Centre, shop and cafe.
