About our winery:
Eastcott is a small owner-run, single 6 acre vineyard and winery in West Devon, making internationally recognised still and sparkling English wines.
Our sparkling wines are all made using the traditional method of bottle fermentation, where ageing on the lees adds to the complexity of the flavour. We are passionate about the grapes we grow and the wine we make.
Three things to love about us:
Eastcott Wines are fresh and fruity with a real English character. We have chosen styles of wine to suit our cool climate with a particular emphasis, therefore, on making sparkling wines. Our range also includes still whites and rosés.
A combination of the best age-old traditions with modern equipment affords us the end to end control that we believe is essential for the production of small volume high quality wines. We nurture the grapes with intensive hands on care throughout the year until they are hand picked in the very best tradition. They then move into our modern winery, which in its former life was an agricultural barn. Here we favour a minimal intervention approach to the winemaking whilst at the same time bringing our own exacting standards to the process.
What makes us unique:
We are a husband & wife who do everything on-site from vineyard management and winemaking to marketing and sales. Our main sales outlet is from the cellar door. We also offer guided tours on set days, from April to September. Our opening varies seasonally, so please check our website for more details.
