Technical Committees

There are 3 technical committees; The Vineyard Technical Committee; The Winemaking Technical Committee; and, The Business Technical Committee. They are made up of experienced professionals working in the UK wine industry.


New technical committee members who wish to play an active role in developing best-practice guidelines are actively sought. Producers from outside the South East of England are particularly encouraged to become members so that regional committees can be established. Membership of these Technical Committees is open to anyone who can demonstrate a minimum of:

  • 3 years of professional wine production experience and a relevant higher education (BSc, Foundation Degree, or equivalent) qualification; or,
  • 5 years of professional wine production experience
