Hospitality trade customers in Dorset can now get their fix of delicious, prestigious wine, thanks to the collaboration of two of our local independent merchants…
Dorset’s largest independent winery, Templar Wines, is supplying prestigious Langham Wine Estate products to hospitality trade customers throughout the county.
Since it was established in 2008, Templar Wines, based in Poole, has imported wines from all over Europe to supply for independent hospitality businesses, including restaurants, hotels, pubs, bars and event organisers.
Now, due to a year-long agreement, all Langham’s sparkling wine will be available for you to enjoy.
Max Bracher, managing director of Templar Wines, explained:
“We were going to begin in April, but due to the ongoing pandemic, a date will be announced in the future when the hospitality sector reopens, for customers to enjoy all the Langham favourites in their regular haunts.
“It is an ideal fit for us, because we undertake regular deliveries to customers along the South Coast. Many of them also stocked Langham wines, creating both logical and environmental synergy.
“The Langham Estate has become one of the leading winegrowers in the UK, and having won various awards, it makes our portfolio stronger and enables the trade to offer an award-winning, local English wine for their customers.”
Langham Wine Estate prides itself in crafting terroir-driven sparkling wines using grapes only grown on its vineyard. Located east of Dorchester, the 11-hectare, south-facing vineyard at Crawthorne was planted in 2009 with a mixture of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Hospitality customers will be able to order more frequent deliveries of smaller quantities, which in turn will allow them to carry less stock while also running less risk of running out.
There is a café and tasting room at Langham Wine Estate, provisionally due to reopen in July, COVID-19 rules permitting. Meanwhile, Templar Wines offers more than 600 unique, interesting wines which are not found in supermarkets, with regular deliveries throughout Dorset and the New Forest.
“I’ve known Max for several years and we’re proud to announce this official association for the hospitality and leisure sector,” said Justin Langham, managing director of Langham Wine Estate. “We firmly believe it will take our wines out to the local on trade, thanks to their connections and we hope the relationship will continue to flourish for many years.”
