Of course wine making in the UK goes back to Pre-Roman times and is a popular today as ever. During the 1950’s resurgence in planting modern commercial vineyards in Hampshire came the interest and investment into the UK wine industry. One of the prominent founding fathers was Ray Barrington Brock who established a research station at Oxsted in Surrey with vine cuttings from all over Europe and the world to test and find the best combinations. He has written several books on the subject and started in 1949 with “The Grape Vine in England” and went on to write more.
