a’Becketts is a family-run vineyard and orchard in a beautiful location making wine, cider and apple juice. Established in 2001 by Paul and Lynne Langham halfway between Avebury and Stonehenge, as well as its nine acres of vines, it has Wiltshire's last commercial orchard, with six acres of apple trees.

More cider apple trees have been added, and both cider and apple juice are produced. Although not registered as such, the fields are farmed organically.

The Langhams have also recently planted 10 different sorts of perry trees. All products are vegan-friendly.

Tours are run during the summer months and last about 1.5 hours.

  • a'Becketts has worked with United Glass to introduce 10% lighter bottles

The future

The Langhams are actively seeking further investment in terms of fellow wine lovers who would like a long-term association with a growing business. Over 4000 extra vines were planted in 2010 thanks to new Vine Leasers – three-quarters Pinot Noir and a quarter Chardonnay. "We just can't make enough red and rosé" says Paul. "I also fancy a classic sparkler." There are similar plans for 2011. Please contact Paul directly for further information.
