Sharpham wine is an English gem in Devon. They have been making wine for the last 40 years, making them a grande old dame of English wine making.

The New Release is made each year following the principles of Beaujolais Nouveau. Eight weeks after harvest winemaker Duncan Schwab checks each fermentation tank to find the right candidate for the new release. The wine must have finished fermenting and it must be fresh, clean and ready to drink. This is not a wine that needs any bottle age it should be drunk in the full flush of youth.

Often the new release will be a combination of Bacchus and Madeleine Angevine. We can expect flavours and aromas of apple, elderflower and English spring meadows. Of course, part of the fun is that we won't know what it tastes like until the 17 November - this is a fast and fun wine.

The History of New Release

First made in 2006, Sharpham New Release was a rebuff to the French after they banned beef exports in the wake of the BSE crisis.

As a proud west-country business, Sharpham stood in solidarity with the farmers of the area and gave them an English alternative to Beaujolais Nouveau.

The launch of New Release was marked with a race from Sharpham winery, then in the grounds of Sharpham house, up the river dart to Totnes, up the high street, finishing at the Totnes Wine Shop.

The wine proved incredibly popular and has since become an annual bottling for Sharpham.

More Information


Duncan Schwab, Sandridge Barton

Duncan Schwab has been making Sharpham wine for over 25 years. He became CEO when they moved to their new home at Sandridge Barton, Stoke Gabriel in 2022.

With over 40 years of history, Sharpham wines are the result of a happy marriage of soil, climate and grape variety. Ducan uses new world and traditional techniques to develop a unique regional character. 


Devon, England

Devon's vineyards are situatued in the valleys and lowlands of south and east Devon. Mostly close to the rivers Exe, Teign and Dart.

The growing season is long, with sun and heat starting earlier and lasting longer than in many other English counties. This gives the grapes more time to ripen and more time to hang.


Madeleine Angevine

Madeleine Angevine is a white wine grape originally from the Loire Valley in France. The early-ripening grape is a cross between Madeleine Royale and Malingre Précoce grapes that grows well in cooler climates. It makes an attractive fruity wine with a flowery nose, similar to an Alsatian Pinot blanc. It is crisp, acid and dry and pairs particularly well with seafoods such as crab and oyster.
