Wines from Scotland

The Growing Region of Scotland

It’s true that Scotland is famous for its whisky. Of course, it’s not well-known for its wines.

But, this does not mean that there are no wines in Scotland.

The most frequently raised question is, “Isn’t Scotland too cold for viticulture?” Although the region is too cold for the wine grapes to grow, we could see some wineries there.

In the future, we can see more wineries coming up as the planet continues to grow warmer and warmer.

The Scottish wineries could then take advantage of the global warming to grow their wine industry there.

Now, we can just have a look at the wineries in Scotland here. Continue reading…

Chateau Largo Winery

We could say that this is the most popular grape winery in the region.

This winery, which was established in the year 2011, is located in the Fife region.

The reason why this location was selected is probably that it’s a warmer region with a close proximity to the sea.

And yes, there are greenish rolling hills too. The owner of this winery, Christopher Trotter, is a local chef, as well as a food writer.

This winery was established to make his dream of having a winery in Scotland to come true.

The Chateau Largo winery was planted with 200 hybrid grapevines after lots of research. All the grapevines were known to withstand a colder climate.

The first vintage from this winery was available in the year 2015. But, that was deemed as “undrinkable” by the wine critics and the major reason quoted was the issue in winemaking.

Despite the negative review, Trotter was able to prove that wines can be cultivated in the region.

Given the global warming predictions, we can expect some good quality wines from the winery in the near future.

There is a wide estimation that global warming will make the cooler regions suitable for the growth of wine grapes in the future. It includes Scotland as well!

Château Hebrides

In spite of the negative results from the experimental vineyard of Christopher Trotter, there arose another daring wine venture in the region.

It is located on the island in the Outer Hebrides.

Here, the person named, Donald Hope, has prepared wine from twenty black Muscat varieties he planted.

Although this wine was sold only to the local farmers, it has been regarded as a tasty wine.

Therefore, we can expect some more good news from this part of Scotland in the future.

Selkirk’s Island Winery

It’s to be mentioned here that this is a non-Scottish winery in Scotland.

If you take a look at the wine bottles of this winery, you can read the phrase “Wine of Chile”.

Yes, these are the wine styles of Chile, but they are being bottled in the UK (look at the back label).

The three wine styles that are available for tasting are Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and a rose wine.

The name of the brand, Selkirk’s Island was given in honour of a brave Scottish adventurer, who was abandoned on an island near the coast of Chile.

Although these wines are not actually made in Scotland, they didn’t fail to create some local image.

Non-Grape Wineries

Although the region does not permit the growth of wine grapes, the other fruits and mead are known to be contributing to the Scottish wine industry for a long time.

Such fruit and mead wineries are producing some far delicious wines when compared to the grape-based vineyard.

Three of them can often be seen in advertisements, which are namely,

  • Cairn O’Mohr Winery
  • Highland Winery
  • Orkney Wine Company
