Celebrate English wine
With more than 400 vineyards across England and Wales, our home-grown wines are really coming into their own. Our top quality sparkling wines are consistently winning medals and we're producing more than a million bottles a year.
At Waitrose, we truly believe in the principle of supporting our local producers in an industry that's going from strength to strength. We've even planted our own vineyard at the Waitrose farm in Leckford and have successfully launched our first, award-winning sparkling wine.
The majority of vineyards in the UK are focussed in the south-east corner, where the warmer climates and chalky soil make it a particularly good region for sparkling wine production; look out for rising stars from vineyards such as Nyetimber and Ridgeview.
