SUMMER TASTING VISITS


Online booking is now open for tasting visits from May 1 - September 4 2022. Scroll down for options.

SELF-GUIDED TASTINGS


We offer a relaxed do-it-yourself tasting in the vineyard for a group of 2-15. The price is the same for any group size:

  

£60 total for three still wines,

£85 total for 4 wines, including a bottle of our Brut Nature fizz.

Decamp to the vines and relax with your friends at our vineyard tables and deckchairs while you taste our dry white wines from a chilled box of (full-size 75cl) bottles at your own pace. We welcome you with your box, supply tasting notes and self guided tour map/leaflet and can lend you glasses and corkscrew, so you can conduct your own group tasting in the vines and explore the vineyard.

Why not bring or order in a picnic to go with it?


You don't have to have a big party, many couples enjoy this, re-corking the bottles and taking them home. For larger parties you can buy extra chilled bottles while you are here at the normal list price.


You will often have the vineyard to yourselves, or there may be one or two other parties picnicking in another part of the vineyard, so it's very Covid-secure. Ideal for families and friends wanting to meet up outside. We book visits 90 minutes apart but you are welcome to linger longer.


Children and dogs welcome. If you are walking, cycling or riding and want to buy wines to take home we can deliver them to your local base after your visit.  (we have hitching in our yard for up to four horses). Toilet facilities at the farmhouse.

PICNICS


We do not provide food, but you are welcome to bring or order-in a picnic with your tasting.


We can store ordered-in picnics for hour or two in our wine fridge for you. Visitors to Oatley have enjoyed picnics supplied and delivered by local Blackmore Farm Shop, grazing platters from @mesabonitagrazing, @ohsogracious (find these on Instagram), and Ocado, Waitrose and Tesco.


We have chairs, tables and deckchairs at the top of the vineyard. It is an easy walk or you can drive your car up over the grass if the ground is firm. If the weather is unkind we have a table under a gazebo up there.
