The Romans planted vines in Britain and since then vineyards have been an integral part of rural England. But for all sorts of reasons they slowly declined until by the 19th century only one or two remained. The annexation of the Bordeaux vineyards during the reign of Henry II provided wine aplenty and hundreds of little ships with their quota of casks in the hold plied their way up-Channel and beyond. Later the monastic vineyards suffered under Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries and were abandoned. As time went by transportation of goods to and from Europe became easier and viticulture declined even further. The need for a home-based wine industry had disappeared. – Description from AlexJelena
