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 open Thursday to Sunday (inclusive) from 11am to 5pm. We offer guided tours and tastings which can be booked on-line. Visitors will learn about and explore the vineyards and orchards, visit the winery and taste our wines and other products in our newly built Visitors Centre and cellar door shop. Self guided tours and tastings are available on the day too.
We also offer wines by the glass/bottle, coffee, tea, light refreshments including delicious cheese and charcuterie platters as well as vegan and vegetarian alternatives, cakes and ice cream.
