|WROXETER ROMAN VINEYARD||Tourist Attraction|
|Wroxeter, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY5 6PQ|
The Vineyard is situated alongside the ancient Roman City of Uriconium (Wroxeter), which is located between the hill of Wrekin and the town of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, England.
It nestles in a sandy sheltered plateau near the River Severn and is approximately 180 feet above sea level.
The Vineyard was planned in 1987 when the vines were ordered and the land was prepared.
The vines were planted in 1991, with five varieties all grafted on a range of root stocks descended from American root stocks.
