OATLEY

Vineyard


ENGLISH WINE FROM SOMERSET

since 1989

 

Old vines, red soil, authentic, crisp, dry white wines

20 years of international awards 

 
 

We planted our vines on a gentle SE slope between the Quantock Hills and the Bristol Channel in 1986, a warm site that has given 25 vintages of consistently good quality. Oatley is full of wildlife: the countryside as it used to be.


We are proud of our crisp, still white wines, all made from grapes grown here, and their 20+ year track record of awards in the International Wine Challenge and the Decanter World Wine Awards.


We love to welcome interested visitors. Visiting and tasting are free and you can buy wine by the glass, bottle and case. 


You can buy online too.
