The industry, which is still quite young (the oldest vineyards date from the 1960s), has not only matured but has developed a distinctive English style - particularly delicate, sunny aromatic whites - which is winning fans, as well as international awards for zingy Champagne-style sparkling wines. UK wine has shown a stable and consistent development in quality and production of wine. Due to this positive development in UK wine it now serves as a quality alternative for Russian and Australian wines. The most important grape varieties in UK production are Reichensteiner, Seyval Blanc, Müller-Thurgau and Bacchus among others. Classic champagne varieties are also grown to produce the sparkling wines.
