English vineyards map

Did you know that there are 163 vineyards in England and Wales? Those 163 are members of the English Wine Producers group who claim to represent over three-quarters of England’s total wine production, so the ‘actual’ number is a few more.
The EWP has released a new version of it UK Wine Map – available for free from vineyards, key tourist offices and (soon) from the EWP website.

The map depicts the location of each vineyard cross referenced by county and with full contact details, websites and a brief description. Each vineyard is colour coded to show those that welcome visitors, those that do not and those not yet in production.

Time to start planning those Summer visits. I have one vineyard within walking distance and I STILL haven’t managed to get over there and sample the wines.

    Erm, not to be pedantic but I doubt that the *Welsh* vineyards are included in the *English* Wine Producers group. There’s a map of their members here: http://www.englishwineproducers.com/vineyardregional.htm
    All in England.

    The map is titled The Vineyards of England and Wales and does show those in Wales including 2 in Anglesey etc
