English Wine Producers announces dates and details for annual wine week

English Wine Week will run from 29 May to 6 June this year, organiser English Wine Producers (EWP) has announced.

The event will see growers promote English wines by opening up their vineyards to visitors to add to its increasing customer base.

The releases will be from 2006 and include some 5,000 each of Brut and Chardonnay.
