Langham Wines Dorset
As winegrowers, the team at Langham Wines pride themselves in crafting terroir-driven sparkling wines using grapes only grown on their Dorset vineyard. They take a low-intervention approach to both grape growing and wine production, constantly striving to minimise their environmental impact and produce honest wines that reflect their terroir. They don’t fine or filter their wines, making them vegan & vegetarian friendly.
With a south-facing aspect, chalk soils and a unique microclimate, Crawthorne Vineyard provides the perfect terroir for ripening the classic Champagne varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Established hedgerows and trees provide natural wind breaks and habitat for a large variety of beneficial organisms. Growing their own grapes means they can pick at optimum ripeness, free from the shackles of contract purchasing and resulting in a better quality wine.
They are constantly working towards reducing chemical intervention in the vineyard, employing diligent canopy management executed at specific times. By increasing air flow through the canopy and promoting biological control organisms, the effects of disease are kept to a minimum. All the grapes are handpicked, and rigorous vineyard selection ensures only the highest quality grapes arrive at the winery.
We are delighted to be stocking their award-winning Culver Sparkling Wine.
