How to Join

It's all changing, folks!

From 1 January 2018 subsciptions are being collected centrally by WineGB. To join/renew please email Jo Cowderoy, Operations and Membership Manager:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Now membership is managed centrally on a calendar year basis. Until this year membership was managed regionally, Aug-Jul. In August 2017, in preparation for the change, SWVA members paid a 5/12 fee to take them up up to 31st December 2017.

On 1st January 2018 the new national association known as Wines of Great Britain, shortened to WineGB, formed from a merger of the old UK Vineyards Association and English Wine Producers, the large producers' marketing organisation. WineGB is based at Knoll House, Union Wharf, Market Harborough, LE16 7UW. Tel: +44 (0)1858 467792 | Mob: + 44 (0) 7904 011331

A new website is under construction for WineGB. Meanwhile you will find details of membership benefits at www.ukva.org.uk

Fees are currently calculated as follows:
SWVA fee £25.00. This is added to the WineGB fee and paid centrally. The regional fee is passed back to the region by WineGB. 

WineGB Fees are banded according to your size of production, measured either in hectares of productive vines or number of  bottles produced annually. There is a 50% reduction for grower-only members who sell their grapes but do not make or sell wine. Also a Membership Plus category for larger producers, which gives access to enhanced marketing support.
