  • East Anglia has always been a major producer since Ian Berwick of Bruisyard (now sadly closed since Ian's retirement) planted in 1974. Several vineyards are major attractions for tourists, with Mersea,Ickworth and Wyken being pivotally placed. Shawsgate has always provided contract wine-making which has allowed smaller vineyards to develop without the need for expensive equipment.
    Norfolk has never been a major player- for various reasons (ask local viticulturalists!? but Suffolk and Essex have a number of sites well worth visiting.
