OATLEY

Vineyard


ENGLISH WINE FROM SOMERSET

since 1989

 

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

20 years of international awards 

 
 


A small English vineyard on a warm, sheltered, gentle SE slope between the Quantock Hills and the Bristol Channel, near Cannington in Somerset, an early site that gives harvests of consistently good quality from the 27-year-old old vines that we planted in 1986. The vineyard is rich in wildlife, a glimpse of the countryside as it used to be.


Our  crisp, still white wines regularly win awards in the International Wine Challenge and the Decanter World Wine Awards, competing against fine wines of the world.


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.
