Langham Wine Estate, the award-winning vineyard situated in the heart of Dorset, is reopening for alfresco tours and tastings
Keen oenophiles are champing at the bit to book a visit to the boutique winery in Crawthorne since it scooped Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year 2020 in the International Wine & Spirits Competition.
In line with government guidelines, the estate will open from April 14 to welcome visitors for tours, tastings and lunches. From Wednesday to Sunday, guests can join afternoon tours of the vineyard and winery to learn what it takes to craft exquisite sparkling wines, followed by a tutored tasting of three of the award-winning tipples.
The Cellar Door Shop remains open from Tuesday to Friday, 10am-5pm, for those needing to stock up for the much-awaited two-household barbecues.
The team at Langham believe sparkling wines shouldn’t just be saved for toasting special occasions. Wines produced in the UK benefit from a terroir that’s different from their continental counterparts: at Langham, its chalky soils and unique microclimate yield distinctively fresh and fruity creations. Its two classic Cuvees are a case in point: the Culver NV pairs beautifully with charcuterie and smoked cheeses while the Corallian NV complements fish dishes. The vineyard also crafts a beautiful vintage Rosé (try it with afternoon tea), Blanc de Blancs and Pinot Meunier.
