Hello from the chair

Welcome to WineGB South East.

I’m Fergus Elias, your Chairman, and I’m delighted to extend a warm welcome to both returning and new members. Your presence enriches our community, and I look forward to the unique perspectives you bring.
Wine GB South East is a collective endeavor uniting individuals with a shared love for viticulture and winemaking. Our mission is to foster collaboration, provide resources, and create a supportive environment propelling the growth of our region’s wine industry.
Nestled in the South East, our region boasts coveted vineyard sites with unique terroir. Beyond the vines, tourism also plays a crucial role in showcasing our region’s beauty. As ambassadors of Wine GB South East, each member shapes the narrative, attracting enthusiasts to explore the treasures of our vineyards.
I encourage each member to embrace a “you get out what you put in” attitude. Your active participation shapes the future of our organization and contributes to the collective success of our industry. Feel free to get in touch with me at any time—whether you have ideas, suggestions, or questions/concerns.
