UK Wine Industry Budget Statement

It is incredibly disappointing that yet again the wine sector has been hit by what amounts to a real terms increase in duty, ignoring the pleas from the UK wine industry, as a fast-growing sector, and the wider wine trade that higher taxes are damaging trade and hitting the UK wine consumer.

The UK wine industry will be focussing on duty issues over the coming months to look at this in more detail and to discuss further with Government. This will include matters such as equalizing duty on still and sparkling wines as well as focusing on the opportunities that lower duty could have on our industry in a post-Brexit world.
