Published May 30, 2012

This map shows you the Midlands’ grape artisans (and cider makers too), and you might be surprised by the results – there are an impressive 15 vineyards (and 20 cider makers).

The vineyard count suggests that the Heart of England is responsible for well over 10,000 bottles of wine a year, while cider production is on the rise too, with several recent newcomers.
