Over the past few years there has been a huge growth in the UK wine industry. Cultivation is at an all time high, with over 1,500 hectares being grown across the country. But, for many, English and Welsh wines continue to be seen as a relatively unknown quantity.
With this in mind, we’ve created a map which you will see below. You can click the map to access the full infographic. We hope it will act as a definitive guide to UK wine.

Our map has been designed as a broad, current and interactive ‘wine lovers guide’. We have included selected prize winners of the past 5 years to show where the bulk of Britain’s best wine is created.
There is information on the vast history of wine in the UK and links to current wine festivals. There are also links to retailers around the country with diverse selections of the UK’s best wines. In fact, the map is filled with links, so make sure to have a good look around.
We hope you’ll enjoy getting lost in our map as much as we did creating it and we also hope it serves as a fantastic introduction to any international readers not so familiar with the UK wine scene.
We would especially like to thank James Graham of UKvine and Stephen Skelton of englishwine.com for their feedback and assistance. The information provided on both englishwineproducers.com and ukva.org.uk has also proved invaluable.
With England and Wales winning all manner of prizes of late, including a Welsh fizzer which currently holds the title of World Sparkling Wine of the Year, never has there been a better time to get into UK wine!
Thanks for reading, we hope you enjoy the guide and would love to hear any feedback you may have.
