Laneberg Maximilian English Red


Maximilian 2019, named after Elise’s eldest son, is made with 100% Regent grape variety, a Germanic grape that grows really well in the English climate, and is a lovely fruity, fresh and light English red. The perfect red to be drunk ever so slightly cool in the garden during the upcoming Summer evenings.




The Winery by Laneberg Wine is Tyneside’s first Urban Winery. We handcraft wine from grapes grown in England with minimal intervention to let the true character of the grapes shine through.

The Wine

Vinified at the The Winery by Laneberg Wine - Team Valley Gateshead.

Nose: Sour cherries, ripe raspberries, blackberries and smoky cedar.

Palate: The fruits carry on the palate with fresh acidity, dry with smoky oak.

Perfect slightly chilled and served in the garden or for a summer BBQ or with cold meats.

The Grapes

100% Regent, from Furnace Yark’s Hill Vineyard, Herefordshire.


Crushed and destemmed, then fermented at 25°C in stainless steel using Laffort Zymaflore RB2 yeast, with regular pump-overs. Fermentation took eight days, with four days extra maceration post ferment to maximise flavour. Pressed in hydraulic basket press. Aged in old French oak for four months and then bottled without fining or filtration at the winery. No sulphites were added during this process.
