Scotland

English wine is reveling in unprecedented growth. As its reputation improves both domestically and abroad, more vineyards are being planted and existing ones grow older, offering the happy combination of scale and quality.

Although situated at a perilously high latitude, the effects of global warming appear to be, at least in part, benefiting the English in their attempt to produce wine. While wine has been produced here for a long time, often using Germanic and other cool climate grape varieties, the industry really seems to have found its stride in the production of sparkling wine from the traditional Champagne varieties.

Furthermore, the best sites in the south of England are grown on south-facing slopes with chalky soils, not unlike their French counterparts in Champagne, a mere stone throw across the channel.

Scotland Producers

Steadily growing in recognition and prestige, producers like Nyetimber, Gusbourne and Chapel Down are doing wonders for the reputation of UK wine both in Great Britain and around the world. The industry today is thriving off the back of enthusiasm brought to the table by a generation of younger, expertly-qualified winemakers with many having had experience of cellars in other countries.

Wine has been produced in the British Isles for centuries but the modern English wine industry dates back to only the 1950s. Nowadays, English wine is primarily produced in Kent, Sussex and Surrey.

Grape Varieties of Scotland

While wine has been produced here for a long time, often using Germanic and other cool climate grape varieties, the industry really seems to have found its stride in the production of sparkling wine from the traditional Champagne varieties – particularly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – so much so, that apparently Champagne houses have been eyeing up plots in the south of England.
