While wine is a popular drink in the UK, the climate in the country is not especially good for growing the grapes needed to make wine. While currently in the south there are some successful vineyards in places such as Scotland in the north the temperatures are just not warm enough for vineyards. But scientists are predicting increasing temperatures in the country and this could mean an increase in wine production.
With current temperature forecasts for the next 20 years increasing slowly experts are predicting that the UK will be the next hot wine producer on the block. While the future may look good for new vineyards opening up, it is also looking better now for existing regions. In places such as Sussex, Kent and more; vines are producing more grapes and of better quality. This is increasing the premium wines which are being bottled in the region and gaining them more respect in the wine community.
For those looking toward the future of wine, a trip to the UK to enjoy the wines coming from the area now and in the future is well worth the trip. Tasting the fine wines while enjoying snacks from cheese boards is a great way to experience the English countryside.
