The fact the United Kingdom is set to end its membership of the European Union in March 2019 is hardly breaking news. Unless you are particularly close to the political scene, what exactly happens on a weekly basis between the two sides in deciding how the UK leaves the EU, is very much on a need to know basis.

But whatever has decided the exact trading terms for how the UK is now going to do business with the EU and the rest of the world will have enormous ramifications for the rest of the global wine industry.

If you are involved in the sourcing, selling, importing, buying and distributing of wine then you need to be completely on top of what the UK’s new trading relations are.

The UK remains one of the top five, if not top three, markets for the majority of wine producing countries in the world. How much wine it sells to the UK will determine the availability and the price for all the other key markets it operates in.
