We are 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 or through the responsible regional inspector.

To appeal against formal enforcement action, contact the FSA’s business support team by email at
