 Old vines, red soil,

crisp, dry white wines,

20 years of international awards

Welcome to Oatley, our small family-run English vineyard, near Cannington in Somerset.

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 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. We take sustainability seriously, Oatley is full of wildlife: the countryside as it used to be.

We love to welcome wine-loving visitors. Visiting and tasting are free and you can buy wine by the glass, bottle and case and walk the vineyard with us. 

You can buy online here>>.
