Wine of United KingdomView all products in Wine of United Kingdom »
The United Kingdom is a modest producer, especially of white wines produced from hybrids and varieties obtained from crossing different grapes. Vineyards are situated to the south of the line that joins Birmingham and Norwich. They are concentrated on slopes facing the East and the South of England. In these lands, the regulating action of the Gulf Coast reduces the severity of the British climate.
British wine is considered, in the European Union, as Wine of the Country. British regulations establish different types of wines according to its origins, and the best of them are awarded a distinction by the English Viticultural Association.
The United Kingdom classifies its wines according to the following categories: English Wine, the wine obtained from the fermentation of grapes grown in England, and British-Made Wine, the wine produced with imported musts or concentrated grape juice plus alcohol.
