Making English wine accessible for everyone.

We believe everyone should be able to enjoy English wine and understand all the stages of its production, from vineyard establishment to simply buying a great bottle to enjoy with friends.

Founded in 2011 by Kieron Atkinson, the English Wine Project offers wine making and vineyard management consultancy as well operating a wine sales website. At our core is championing English and Welsh wines and helping to improve the quality of wine production across the U.K.

"Kieron's hard work and passion for English wine is clear through his work managing the vineyard here at Renishaw. I know the tours he conducts are very popular with visitors and he knows how to engage with novices and experts alike."
Alexandra Sitwell, owner of Renishaw Hall and Gardens

"My wife and I attended your vineyard tour in Sept and bought a bottle of your sparkling wine as a souvenir. As wine lovers we opened it for Christmas Dinner and introduced it to our guests: all were very pleased and surprised, what is going on in England's wine business! We wish you good luck for the upcoming season, and should you ever come to Austria we would be pleased to meet you, have a glass together and talk about wine!"
Best Regards! Bernhard

"Kieron is hard working, passionate and knowledgeable about pretty much all there is to know about English wine. His engaging manner makes for a fascinating experience at the vineyard - be it on a tour or if you were thinking of establishing your own site. Kieron's the man to talk to."
