This Christmas Eccleshall residents can enjoy a bottle of medal-winning wine from local vineyard Langot Valley Vineyard, at Fairoak.
The one and three-quarter acre vineyard was planted in 2010 with two varieties of vine – the red Rondo grape which produces rose and red wine, along with the Solaris which produces the white.
The Langot Valley red is a light wine with a cherry flavour, ideal for all occasions. The medium-dry rose has a good nose with strawberry fruit flavours, best served at 12 to 14 degrees. The Vineyard’s dry white wine has citrus fruit flavours and a good long finish.
Keeping it totally locally, all three wines can be purchased from Wines Etc on Eccleshall’s High Street.
Langot is French meaning ‘Tongue Shape’ – the name possibly introduced by the glassmakers who came to the area in the 16th century. The sandy soil conditions that attracted the glassmakers are also ideal for growing wines.
