Offbeat Wines began in 2018 as a creative outlet for Daniel Ham’s whilst heading up the winemaking at Langham Wine Estate in Dorset, but it has since grown into a full-time family operation. Since the 2020 harvest Dan and his wife Nicola are making the wines in their own cellar, a converted barn at Botley’s Farm, just outside Salisbury. Both marine biologists, Dan was bitten by the winemaking bug in New Zealand whilst living out there to complete Nicola’s PhD. Dan started his career in wine at Ridgeview in 2012 following courses at Plumpton College. He has now gone full circle and is making wine in probably some of the smallest volumes in the UK. Dan & Nicola have developed close relationships with responsible, passionate growers in the South West, and their wines for the foreseeable future will be focused on celebrating the quality of fruit from two farms in particular.

They work with Duncan McNeill, who farms an organic vineyard in Crouch Valley, planted with Pinot Noir, Blanc and Meunier, and Lucie and Jules in Kent who are growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Bacchus and Pinot Gris, working regeneratively, in organic conversion with an aim towards biodynamics.
