Sussex Wine Tourism: A Plan for Growth
Thanks to the exponential rise in Sussex viticulture over the last ten years fuelled by strong collaborative working across the region, the county now finds itself in an exciting and unparalleled position at the forefront of the UK wine industry.
Substantial engagement, research and development work has created a solid evidence base for future investment, making it clear that the Sussex wine industry is primed and ready for significant growth in tourism. This new plan sets out that ambition, how it can be achieved, and what the continued growth in Sussex wine means to the wider region.
This Growth Plan is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund. It has been led by a partnership which includes Sussex Modern, Plumpton College, the South Downs National Park Authority and the Sussex Visitor Economy Initiative coordinated by East Sussex County Council, West Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council and has been administered by Lewes District Council.
