As we once again celebrate English Wine Week (from 26th May), it’s great to report that the English wine industry is continuing to go from strength to strength, with popularity and interest at an all-time high.
Estimates indicate that the English wine market has trebled over the last few years, to exceed £130 million in value last year.
With around three quarters of English wine consisting of the sparkling kind, English producers have also benefited hugely from the growth in this category and the British wine drinkers love affair with the fizzy stuff.
English wine is also benefiting from the surge in popularity for other English drinks such as gin and local craft beers, which are also riding high.
English sparkling wine has also continued to scoop awards both in the UK and abroad – continued evidence that English wine is taken seriously as a high-quality product.
The drop in the value of sterling relative to the Euro also provides an opportunity for English wine producers looking to grow their sales overseas, which is leading to further investment and growth in additional capacity.
English Wine Week is a national campaign designed to raise awareness of English wine across the country through retail outlets – from supermarkets to independent wine merchants, delicatessens to hotels, pubs, bars and restaurants. Vineyards across the country will also be opening their doors to welcome visitors, offering tours, tastings and special offers. There will be a wide range of activities which take place across the country to celebrate English Wine Week.
Look out for events taking place in your area as English Wine Week gets underway on the 26th May. And don’t forget to follow #EnglishWineWeek on twitter @englishwine and @englishwineweek!
As a supplier to the wine industry we say cheers and long may your success continue!
