The UK is a premium wine-producing region with around 500 vineyards in England and Wales covering some 4,500 acres producing sparkling and still wines. Viticulture and winemaking in England and Wales boasts a long and rich history. From pre-Roman times to the present day, there has been winegrowing in Britain. In the last 10 years, hectarage of planted vines has more than doubled and is set to grow by a further 50% by 2020. The largest single vineyard is Denbies in Kent and the largest estate is owned by Nyetimber. Sparkling wine production started to exceed still from the 2010 harvest, and the sparkling wine sector continues to grow year on year. In the last 16 years, English sparkling wines have won 9 trophies for Best International Sparkling Wine and 6 trophies for Best Sparkling Rosé in Global Competitions – no other country has achieved this.
