Monmouthshire

Wales

Description

Located in the South West of Wales, with an population of around 87,000, Monmouthshire sits along the English border with it's largest town, Abergavenny, historically a farming town, located in it's most northernly parts.


In Wales there is no official administration for the wine industry making it hard to speak with confidence about the grape varietals to be found here. Often, due to the cooler, wetter climate enjoyed in these parts, wineries will use grapes such as Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier for the reds and Madeleine Angevine, Seyval Blanc, Schonburger and Muller-Thurgau and occasionally Chardonnay for the whites.
