Proud to support English & Welsh vineyards

English & Welsh wines are going through a time of exuberant growth and great excitement. There are now over 500 commercial vineyards in the UK, with more plantings and more wine releases every week.

Every major wine competition throws up more gold medals for English wines, and yet our native winemakers are so ambitious, they are determined to do better still.

At Waitrose, we love the thrill of discovering new and wonderful English & Welsh wines, not just from the big, established winemakers but also from smaller boutique wineries and new start-ups. We have our own vineyard in Hampshire, growing classic Champagne grape varieties for our very own Leckford Estate Brut, so we understand the trials (and sometimes terror of frost, hail and an abrupt end to the autumn sunshine crucial for ripening), of making wine in our marginal climate and the sheer joy of overcoming the elements to make something irresistibly delicious!

If you haven't tried an English wine before, dig in and give it a go. And if you're already a convert, we're continually adding new wines to our selection, so we really hope you enjoy our latest discoveries.
