Latest monograph out now.......

"The Essential Guide to English Wine" by Susie Barrie MW and Peter Richards MW

We are very pleased to announce our latest monograph focussing on the exciting and dynamic English wine scene, by award winning writers Susie Barrie MW and Peter Richards MW.  

As Susie and Peter conclude their introduction….“What you have in your hands is a snapshot of a fast-moving young industry. As a result, we have tried to retain a sense of the broader perspective as well as the fine detail. Our aim is to pique your curiosity, bring key information to your attention and invite you to explore. Above all we encourage you, as the late Geoff Bowen of Pebblebed Vineyards put it, “To drink the view”. It is a most magnificent vista.”

A handy, almost pocket-sized monograph, paperback, 72 pages covering Setting the Scene, Key Producers (A-Z of 38 leading wineries), Other Notable Producers plus an Experience English Wine section providing details of the latest winery experiences, tours and much more.

Copies are available direct from the IWFS office in London at £6.99 per copy (add £1 for postage and packing).  To order copies, please contact Andrea Warren on email:  Click here to download an order form.  For trade enquiries please email
