Swanaford Estate is a small, family vineyard hand-crafting superb sparkling and still wines on south east-facing slopes of the Teign Valley, six miles to the south west of Exeter. The 10-acre vineyard is planted with Champagne clones of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier to create traditional method sparkling wines. In addition, we have a block of Baachus and Siegrebbe to produce approachable, easy-drinking white wines.

Directions: 
From Exeter: Follow the B3212 from Exeter and after about 7 miles, you will cross a hump back single track bridge over the river Teign. Directly opposite is Swanaford Road, with a post box in the hedge on the right. Turn up here and follow the lane round two bends, up the hill for 50 metres and then take the right hand turn down Swanaford Road. After about 100 metres you'll go past a drive on your right for Swanaford House, continue on and you'll see the vineyard entrance on your right. Come down the drive and park in front of the barn. From Chudleigh: head down the B3212 towards Christow and Dunsford. At the end of a long straight, turn left up Swanaford Road (there's post box in the hedge at the start of the road). If you cross the river Teign, you've gone too far. Follow the lane round two bends, up the hill for 50 metres and then take the right hand turn down Swanaford Road. After about 100 metres you'll go past a drive on your right for Swanaford House, continue on and you'll see the vineyard entrance on your right. Come down the drive and park in front of the barn. Please stay on the B3212 to find us. If your sat nav is taking you up towards the Bridford Inn, not up Swanaford Road, then please head back down to the main road and head towards Dunsford, it should then reroute you.
