At the heart of the Langham Estate sits the magnificent Bingham’s Melcombe manor house, Grade I listed and little changed since the reign of Edward VI. Acquired by John Langham in 1980, Bingham’s Melcombe became the centre point for the Langham Agricultural Enterprise, today comprising over 1,000 hectares.
The Langham vineyard was originally established by John Langham on a very small scale. In 2009 John’s son, Justin Langham, decided to develop his father’s rudimental vineyard into a commercial venture, and planted 30 acres of land at their Crawthorne farm.
Our wines are made solely from the classical Champagne varieties Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Pinot meunier. Every bunch is carefully hand-picked and processed using a mixture of old and new techniques in our on-site winery. We adopt a low intervention approach and as such all our wines are vegan.
We only use the Traditional Method, utilising a second, in bottle fermentation, to produce the sparkle. Each bottle is then aged on yeast lees for a minimum of 18 months before being disgorged and aged further under cork. Only when we are 100% satisfied with the wine will we release it for sale.
The Tasting Room and Cafe are currently closed BUT you can still order online!
