Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Although wine has been produced in the United Kingdom since the Roman era, wine production in modern times had, until recently, been little more than a hobby. During the past decade, however, the amount of land dedicated to vine growing has risen by 148%, according to the University of East Anglia. Over the past five years, rising domestic and international interest in British wine has been supported by the attainment of a number of major international awards. Wine is mostly produced in the South and South East of England and is predominantly sparkling. Warmer than average weather for much of the past decade improved grape yields and wine quality. Industry revenue is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 5.8% over the five years through 2016-17 to reach £87.5 million... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Wine Production industry has exhibited robust growth in recent years, underpinned by rising demand for English and Welsh sparkling wine. Rising incomes and discretionary spending supported strong sales as the period began. Extremely wet weather resulted in lower production in 2011-12 and 2012-13, which led to revenue slowing even further in 2014-15. However, growth has since been rejuvenated, with buoyant demand for domestically produced sparkling wine and rising exports boosting revenue. Overall, industry revenue is estimated to increase at a compound annual rate of 5.8% over the five years through 2016-17 to total £87.5 million, including growth of 6.4% in the current year.
