The Langham Wine Estate is a wall-to-wall, grape to glass delight. Not content with being an international sparkling wine producer of the year award winner - take a bottle of the Pinot Meunier Extra Brut home - the winery also has a rustic café and outdoor pizza kitchen.
Walk-ins are welcome, though book online in summer to secure a spot in the café or hay-stacked barn, or at a bench amongst the vines and pretty hedgerows. Sharing and seafood platters are piled high with bright delicacies, and local ales and ciders join the homegrown wines on the menu. The Portland crab open focaccia is fab, the soft cheese soaked in Kalamata olive brine a salty speciality, and the Dorset posh ploughman's a window into local fruits and flavours.
Feast your eyes on the grape-filled greenery with a guided tour (£25), opt for the self-guided walking tour with a wine tasting flight (£15), or enjoy your pre-ordered picnic within the satisfying symmetry of the vineyard.
