    License for small garden vinyeard


    Do you need a license or other special approval to set up a small vineyard in your back garden? What sort of lessons or such should I undertake if I wanted to go down this road so that I can get all the knowledge and skills I need to safely produce wine (if allowed at all)?

    "All vineyards over 0.1 hectare (approximately a quarter of an acre) in size are required to be registered with the Food Standards Agency. Owners must register their vines no later than 6 months after planting them and must notify the FSA of subsequent changes."

    "You can have your own vineyard with no licence providing it's for personal use (I.e. you don't sell the wine) there is many ways of doing this online"

    "No license needed if for your own use, selling it or distilling you need license. Got a good book (somewhere) on it used to brew own beer! It's pretty straight forward so probably don't need to do a course as for safe production don't worry if it goes wrong you got vinegar!"
