Next Meeting

An English (and maybe Welsh!) selection with Will Parker

7th October 2022

We are delighted to be welcoming back Will Parker, with an update on English wines to kick off our 2022-23 season.

With around 800 vineyards, over 170 wineries, around 3,800 hectares under vine, 7.1 million bottles sold in 2020, and exports to 30 countries, wine production in the UK, though still small scale in world terms, is firmly established and still on its upward trajectory. There is red, rose and white still wine but the majority is sparkling, which is best suited given our climate and soil types.

While South East England features prominently there are vineyards much further afield including in Scotland! Will plans to showcase some of the various styles from England (home to over 95% of the production) and maybe Wales.

Due to Covid-19, we have made a few changes to how NEWTS meetings are going to be run. The details of these can be found here.
