Devon Wine Week
Laura from Sharpham Vineyard
reports: Following a fantastic 2009 vintage in Devon, the
local vineyards are even more excited than usual in the run
up to this yearís Devon Wine Week at the end of May.
Devon Wine Week takes place annually and gives us the chance
to celebrate regional wines in style with the week long
festivities running from Saturday 29th May till Sunday 6th
June 2010. Vineyards across Devon have organised special
events and tours, giving people the perfect opportunity to
discover, taste and celebrate Devonís superb wines.
Many people have not yet discovered the delicious wines that
are being produced right here on our very doorstep. Did you
know, for instance, that we now have 24 vineyards in Devon,
producing a range of whites, rosťs and reds, many to
international acclaim? So forget catching that ferry to
France and pop along to a Devon vineyard and celebrate Devon
Wine Week by tasting the fantastic array of fruity, aromatic
still and sparkling wines on offer.
Here in Devon Sharpham, Eastcott, Kenton, Manstree, Old
Walls, Pebblebed and Yearlstone vineyards have joined
together to promote their regional wines and to celebrate
Devonís diverse food and wine culture, in whatís believed to
be the biggest regional celebration of English Wine week.
Over the week, there will be something taking place every
single day, at the vineyards and participating outlets. A
host of different activities, both informative and
entertaining, are being laid on for your enjoyment, giving a
wide range of opportunities to get to know these many
award-winning wines better, and really see just how
versatile and delicious they are.
At Sharpham vineyard the week long celebration will include
guided vineyard and winery tours twice daily, an art
exhibition of local art hanging in our winery, portrait
painting by local artist Mick Chambers, BBQ food, live music
and much, much more!

The Cave de Roquebrun is a fab Languadoc co-operative
established in 1968 and based in the Haut Languedoc
national park 30 km north of Beziers and between the two
regional capitals Montpellier and Toulouse.
This is a very well structured gold medal winning wine
which would go well with a nice steak on the BBQ. Whilst
the wine has great depth is only a very reasonable 13%!
We sell this wine for £8.25 per bottle or at a case
price of £7.99 per bottle, which as we promised, you
will not find cheaper anywhere else on the internet.
