Powys

Wales

Description

Powys, running vertically along the east of Wales, with it's eastern side bordering England, is mostly mountainous. The majority of the Powys population is made up of villages and small towns and although the largest county in Wales in land area, it also has the lowest population density.


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.
