Welcome to Marlings Vineyard, an award-winning vineyard nestled in the New Forest National Park, Hampshire, England
Marlings is nestled in a secluded valley in the beautiful New Forest National Park, Hampshire. Our small vineyard has a south facing, generally sunny aspect and is sheltered by the surrounding forest.
The cooler English climate allows for the slow, gentle ripening of our grapes helping to ensure an optimal acidity for our wines, as well as adding complexity and refinement.
All our grapes are carefully hand-picked to ensure we choose only the finest fruit and then we gently press and blend them in our own winery.
We focus on producing high quality English sparkling wines, notably our Sparkling Rosé, made using traditional methods, and our Bacchus still white wines.
A Little History
Marlings Vineyard takes its name from the centuries-old practice of marling where marl was dug from pits and spread onto farm land to improve soil fertility. Marl is earth containing lime, and naturally occurs in the New Forest.
Marlings was first planted in 1990 and we benefit from mature vines that are now over 25 years old.
The vineyard was planted with varieties more suitable for the climate of that time including Bacchus, Dornfelder, Reichensteiner and Seyval Blanc.
Local sources tell us that some of the first bottles of Marlings English Table Wine were even stocked in the Houses of Parliament.
