English Wine Producers and UK Vintners Association combine
For years English wine has had one official trade body, the UKVA, dealing with legislation and helping all UK wine makers large and small. Its partner has been the highly successful English Wine Producers whose focus has been on marketing. They both have now combined to create the UK Wine Producers, a united front to push English and Welsh wine.
The new body UK Wine Producers will represent wineries and vineyards of all sizes, and will cover all aspects of winemaking in England and Wales, including regulation, legislation, education, growing tourism, and promotion of the industry at home and abroad.
