Welcome to the Thames & Chilterns Vineyards Association

The Thames and Chilterns Vineyards Association (T&CVA) was formed in 1988 to further the interests of the vineyards, viticulturalists and winemakers in the area. Today the Thames and Chilterns Vineyards Association has members spread between commercial vineyard owners, viticulturalists, winemakers and others with a general interest in viticulture and oenology.

The Association has members residing in the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and Greater London. The Association aims to hold meetings and workshops throughout the year on topics associated with viticulture and oenology. We also hold an annual competition to find the best local wines. You can view details of these on our Events page.

Member vineyards regularly compete in national and international wine competitions and we regularly have winners from our region in the EVA/UKVA English and Welsh Wine of the Year Competition.

In February 2001 the T&CVA affiliated to the UK Vineyards Association (UKVA). The Association's Chairman and Officers regularly liaise with UKVA on all matters affecting vinegrowing and winemaking, putting forward the views of its members on matters relevant to the region.
