HAND TENDED, ECO-FRIENDLY

We make just two wines most years, and maybe mature a little in our single barrique.

We planted our vines in 1986 (with spades!) on a gentle SE slope of red soil between the Quantock Hills and the Bristol Channel: a warm, favoured site that reliably gives us good quality grapes. We harvest by hand with family, friends and volunteers. Usually we make just two dry, white varietal wines each year and mature one barrique’s worth in oak, giving a special, limited-edition oaked wine in addition.


Our wines are sought-after, consistently winning international and national awards.


After 30 years of low-intervention, eco-friendly husbandry, Oatley is full of wildlife: the countryside as it used to be. We take sustainability seriously.


We love to welcome interested visitors. It's an unspoilt, uncommercial kind of place. Hope to see you here one day.
