Wine of United KingdomView all products in Wine of United Kingdom »
The United Kingdom is not a large-scale producer of wine, but it produces white wines obtained from hybrid grapes and grape varieties obtained from crossing different grapes. Vineyards are situated in the south of the country. They are concentrated on slopes facing the East and the South of England. In these lands, the Gulf Coast breezes tone down 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 English Viticultural Association is in charge of awarding a distinction to the best of them.
The United Kingdom classifies its wines according to the following criteria: English Wine, which is the wine obtained from the fermentation of grapes grown in England, and British-Made Wine, which is the wine produced with imported musts or concentrated grape juice plus alcohol.
