Langham Wine Estate launches 2014 wines as The Vineyard Café opens to the public
Dorset sparkling wine producer Langham Wine Estate is showcasing the brand new 2014 vintages of its three cuvées on Thursday 20th July, coinciding with the opening of its new kitchen, ‘The Vineyard Café’, headed up by Andrew James Catering.
The three new wines, available to taste and buy, are the Classic Cuvée 2014, Rosé 2014 and Blanc de Blancs 2014. Following the official launch in London in June, Langham Wine Estate is delighted to share the new vintages with trade and public onsite, alongside dishes served from the brand new kitchen. Andrew James’ Vineyard Café will offer homemade seasonal dishes for hungry visitors, complimenting the English sparkling cuvées with tasty breakfasts, lunches and snacks.
Justin Langham, owner of Langham Wine Estate, comments on the new kitchen: “The opening of our tasting room last July meant even more people could come and enjoy our wines a stone’s throw from the vineyard; it was a natural progression for us to build a kitchen to offer delicious local food during their visit. Andrew James Catering was an obvious choice as his dishes perfectly compliment our wines and ethos of high quality, Dorset produce.”
Daniel Ham, Langham winemaker continues: “We’re very proud to finally showcase the 2014 vintages with our customers old and new: from the golden, luxurious Classic Cuvée to the Pinot Noir-driven complex Rosé and our buttery, elegant Blanc de Blancs which we bottle-aged for 24 months on the lees after fermenting in neutral oak barrels.”
The new menu at the Vineyard Café includes breakfast sandwiches on freshly baked bread with free-range eggs, local meat and smoked Arctic char. Lunch dishes include a Winemakers Lunch with home roasted gammon, coastal cheddar, pork and cranberry hand raised pie, rustic bread and chutney, a smoked fish platter, and choice of a daily special savoury tart tatin or quiche. And much more!
