Vineyards of Hampshire was the first regional English wine group to be formed, starting in 2015 with the primary aim of creating a strong, place-specific identity for the wines that almost all come from the spectacularly deep chalk soils of the county. They decided that by working collaboratively on events and creating a support network, they would have a far greater impact and a far greater chance of putting Hampshire on the map. 

It was a very smart move...
