The FSA is responsible for the enforcement of wine regulations in the UK. This covers all premises and traders within the production and marketing chain, including wholesalers, warehouses and vineyards. Retail premises come under the control of local authorities.
The Wine Standards Inspection Team can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the responsible regional inspector.
To appeal against formal enforcement action, contact the FSA’s business support team by email at email@example.com.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has launched a digital guide - Food and drink businesses: working with the EU. It covers the key actions food and drink businesses may need to take after the end of the transition period.
The guide will host the most up to date guidance for wine producers and traders, with changes and additions made as further information is confirmed.
