The global demand for British wine continues to increase, with British wine now being sold in over 40 countries world-wide. The Department works hand-in-hand with key industry bodies to help support and promote the sector. Our activities include: hosting international buyer visits to the UK and matchmaking them with UK wine producers; providing financial support for companies to exhibit at key overseas trade shows; supporting overseas missions to new markets; and running influencer visits to continue to enhance the reputation of our wine industry globally.
