Appellations of England

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 England

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.
