English wine could soon be taking on the world, thanks to the country's first dedicated research centre in Sussex - given the Royal seal of approval today.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, opened the £2 million pound facility at Plumpton College near Brighton.
It's also offering the first UK postgraduate course in winemaking.
The idea is to attract talent from all over the world and create an environment where winemaking can flourish.
