Style of Wine - Madeleine Angevine Whites

Wines made from the Madeleine Angevine grape attract avid fans and adamant detractors in equal measure. These white wines are crisp, delicate and fruity with high acidity, which makes them a great match for fish dishes. Our suggestion is to try a couple from different producers, maybe with a little smoked salmon, and make up your own mind. The vineyards below are all visitor-friendly and are happy to sell you their wines from the cellar door.

The Feast Day of St Madeleine is on 25th May, which is at the beginning of English Wine Week, so that seems like a particulary good time to enjoy a glass or two of Madeleine Angevine.

Other vineyards producing Madeleine include the Archers Vineyard at Lower Loxley in Borsetshire and Danebury in Hampshire. Neither of these is open to visitors.

If you fancy trying a very different type of wine made from Madeleine grapes, we’d recommend North Star, an award winning sweet wine from Eglantine Vineyard.
