Celebrating English wine
It’s fair to say that English wine is considerably overlooked in comparison to some of its European counterparts. However English wine week, taking place Saturday 27th May – Sunday 4th June, is designed to raise awareness of English wine across the country and all it has to offer.
‘The UK is a premium wine-producing region, with around 500 vineyards in England and Wales covering some 4,500 acres and producing sparkling and still wines. English and Welsh wines have been winning many prestigious awards.’
What’s more, following English wine week is the start of London wine week, from Monday 5th – Sunday 11th June 2017. In celebration of both events, we will be offering Dart Valley Reserve 2014 by Sharpham Wines in The Petersham Restaurant from Saturday 27th May – Sunday 11th June.

History of Sharpham Wines
‘We have been making award-winning wines at our family-run vineyard on the banks of the River Dart, just downstream from Totnes, since 1981. We are a small and friendly bunch who work hard to make the best handmade wines possible.
We are very passionate about what we do here at Sharpham and are always striving to be as good as we possibly can be. We are at the forefront of vine growing and wine making in the UK and Sharpham Wines are widely recognised as producing some of England’s most outstanding wines.
Traditional and New World techniques are employed in our winery resulting in wines that are stylish and offer intense fruit flavours and aromas. They are made from hand-picked grape varieties grown on our own sheltered slopes overlooking the River Dart.’
