Calancombe Estate; home of Calancombe Wines (award-winning wines lovingly crafted from grapes exclusively grown on the Calancombe Estate) and Dartmouth Distillery Co (an award winning artisan gin distillery).


Calancombe Wines

Caroline and Lance’s story began in 2012 when they bought the Calancombe Estate in South Devon, located between Dartmoor and the coast and with origins that can be traced back to the 16th century.  Blessed with a unique microclimate, south-facing slopes and free draining soil, the Estate is ideally suited for our award-winning wine production. 

Their aim is to produce the finest quality sparkling and still white, red and rosé wines from grapes grown exclusively on our Estate. We undertake all aspects of the winemaking from hand-picking the grapes to bottling and labelling the wines in our winery purpose built on the Estate. 

Calancombe Estate is open Thursday to Sunday (inclusive) from 11am to 5pm (4pm Sundays). They offer guided tours and tastings which can be booked on-line.  Visitors will learn about and explore the vineyards and orchards, visit the winery and taste our wines and other products in  our newly built Visitors Centre and cellar door shop. In the Winter when there is less to see in the vineyards we will spend more time in the winery and explain what happens in the vineyard during the tasting. If, after the tasting, you are interested in exploring the vineyards and orchards wthey will provide you with an annotated map so you can explore for yourself.. Self guided tours and tastings are available on the day too.

They also offer wines by the glass/bottle, coffee, tea, light refreshments including delicious cheese and charcuterie platters as well as vegan and vegetarian alternatives, cakes and ice cream. 

Visit the website to order online. £9 UK Delivery. Free delivery on orders over £150. Collection from the cellar door also available.

Dartmouth Distillery Co.

AWARD WINNING PREMIUM GIN DISTILLED IN DEVON

Dartmouth Distillery's still was designed and hand-built specifically for them by the Müller family, from the Black Forest in Germany, who have been making stills for generations.  This unique copper pot-still is key to what makes their gin so special.  Müller’s patented design gives them precise control throughout the production of their spirit to develop the fullest flavour and a remarkably smooth spirit. 

They create Dartmouth English Gin with the finest botanicals we can source from around the World, together with herbs, flowers and fruit from the Calancombe Estate. The crystal clear fresh spring water, sourced at Calancombe, is an essential element of the gin they produce.

Dartmouth English Gin is smooth, full bodied and refreshing.  It can be enjoyed on its own, is delightful with tonic and is the perfect foundation for a wide range of cocktails, where the gin’s complexity and balance provide the perfect serve.

Looking for event ideas? Or just wish to learn more about gin - get in touch. Dartmouth Gin are passionate about sharing their wisdom with others in a fun and inviting environment. Check out their services on offer below.  

GIN SCHOOL

Hosted by the Head Distiller, guests will have the opportunity to spend the afternoon discovering a few secrets about how Dartmouth English Gin is made, including how to operate the Distillery’s bespoke Müller column still. Guests decide their own botanical mix and then run one of the 10 copper alembic stills to produce their own unique gin to take home.

GIN TASTING

See how they make multi-award winning Dartmouth English Gin using their unique Müller Brennereianlagen still and hear about the history of gin. Take the opportunity to taste Dartmouth English Gin, Dartmouth Navy Strength Gin and other spirits that may be available seasonally.
