Torview are a small family run boutique vineyard and winery, sheltered by the tors of Dartmoor, with a focus on red wine production. All their wines are soft and fruity, easy drinking, and matured in oak.

About the people

Tim decided to leave his old role for a better quality of life and to pursue his dreams of an outdoor vocation. Beginning his career in the wine industry in 1998, Tim started gaining experience working at Denbies, the biggest vineyard in the country. Since then he has continued working in the industry including five years at Camel Valley. This practical experience has been backed up with time spent in Margaret River in Australia, and training provided by both the University of California (at Davies) and Hawkes Bay in New Zealand.

Although a great lover of wine, Cat is new to the winemaking industry, having recently completed 18 year’s service with the Royal Navy.  Finally putting her Biochemistry Degree to use in the winery, she will eventually take on the role of Winemaker in addition to working alongside Tim in the vineyard.

After setting up his own vineyard, Tim started to advise and contribute to the establishment of ten other vineyards in the South West.

Torview Vines and Wines

Pinot Noir, Rondo and Dornfelder are the 3 red grape varieties grown for their different growing properties and flavour characteristics.

The common characters in the wines include subtle, soft, fruity, easy drinking, stylish, hedgerow fruits. Much of this comes from the slower Southwest ripening conditions, and they have been known to pick into Mid November.

Orla the Vineyard Dog

Every vineyard has to have a dog and Torview is no exception! Orla is the newest one to the industry but has already excelled in chasing sticks in the vineyard and keeping rabbits at bay. She is responsible for security and will be the first to welcome you to the vineyard, even more so if you rub her belly!

The easiest way to find the vineyard is to approach via Highampton.

Follow the sign for Sheepwash, and keep on going through the village of Sheepwash.

Continue on this road, as the vineyard is one mile north of the village and clearly visible from the road.
