OATLEY VINEYARD AWARDS

1991-2017

OATLEY

Vineyard

Oatley wines consistently reach international standards, with 35 International Wine Challenge awards in 26 years for the one or two wines a year we enter. In the Decanter World Wine Awards, with 15 awards in 9 years.


These are the world's largest wine competitions with tens of thousands of wines entered from all over the world, blind-tasted and judged in London. 


Since 2010 we have entered the UK Vineyards Association’s "English and Welsh Wine of the Year" competition. It’s the only UK-based competition judged exclusively by Masters of Wine. In 2017 it became the "UK Wine Awards" with Oz Clarke chairing the judges' panel.


Regional trophies (lower awards not included) are from the South West Vineyards Association and, in the vineyard's early days, the Bath & West Show’s English Wine competition judged by luminary of the wine world, the late John Avery.
