Wine in the UK is produced in the south of England and at a few vineyards in Wales. Although the commercial wine industry in the UK is in its early stages, vines were introduced by the Romans who tried to grow wines as far north as Lincolnshire. When wine-growing began to pick up, in the 1970s, many of the grapes grown were German hybrid crosses such as Bacchus and Reichensteiner but there is now planting of international grape varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Many people, including the Champenoise (who are continually rumoured to be buying land in the UK) believe that, with the advent of global warming, the future of the UK wine industry will lie with sparkling wines. The relatively cool climate and chalky soils allows the production of top quality sparkling wines such as Nyetimber. Our local vineyard is Titchfield Vineyard who makes red, white and sparkling wine.
