 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.

Visiting details>>

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. Oatley is full of wildlife: the countryside

as it used to be . We take sustainability seriously (read more about our sustainability measures>>),
