British Wine


Now most typically a sweet, fortified wine in imitation of Sherry, but occasionally in other styles.

It is important to note the distinction between English wine and British wine. English wine is produced from fresh grapes grown in the UK, whereas British wine is a form of 'made wine' (qv) which can be manufactured in the UK and Ireland from imported grapes, grape juice, grape must or a combination of these with fruit or fruit juices etc. Although 'made wine' products can be called 'wine' they must be prefixed with a term such as British, mead, fruit, tonic etc. These products are not governed by the EU Wine Regime.
