The largest Grower Survey in the history of UK wine was carried out in early 2019. This came on the back of one of the great British vintages in 2018. With the support of the 2016 ICCWS Committee, WineGB commissioned the largest grower survey of yield and production variables ever undertaken in the UK. The Survey launched in January 2019 with invitations to participate going out to WineGB Members and Non-Members alike.
In this first year, the data gathered sets the foundations for what will be an ongoing data collection exercise, facilitating better targeting of industry development initiatives, R&D, grower education, public policy measures and private investment.
