The UK wine industry is seeing significant growth in these early years of the 21st century. UK wines are gradually making a name for themselves on the international scene but they have a long way to go to achieve the status and recognition displayed by their European and New World counterparts.
The purpose of this site is to bring together published material from a range of sources which could otherwise only be found by scanning through endless search engine listings.
We have complied this list of vineyards from various sources online. For each vineyard where we have found the relevant information we give the website, latest tweets and details of awards won.
If you have any comments or suggestions contact us.
We would to acknowledge the following whose work was a valuable resource in compiling the data on this website:
- Stephen Skelton, whose own list of vineyards can be found on his website.
- English Wine Producers
- UK Vineyards Association
