ENGLISH WINE FROM SOMERSET

since 1989 

 
 

 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 from grapes grown here, and their 20+ year track record of international awards.


We planted our vines (with spades!) 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 (read more).


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 our wines online here>>.  Our visit vouchers include a tasting, tour and wine to take home and make memorable presents. Buy online here>>
