What is the geography and climate of the Welsh wine region?

The Wales wine region is heavily influenced by maritime weather. Prevailing Westerly winds drive a lot of rainfall from the Atlantic Ocean onto the Welsh vineyards. The average temperatures in the Welsh wine region are also low in comparison to the French wine regions and therefore affects the amount of sugar that is produced in the grapes. Lower sugar levels in the grapes reduces the amount of alcohol that can be produced naturally and sometimes additional sugar is added to increase the alcohol content.
