About Oxney Organic Estate

Oxney Organic Estate is made up of 35 acres of vines which produce around 20% of all organic grapes grown in the UK, used to make an increasingly celebrated range of still and sparkling wines. Oxney believe that the future of English wine is organic. The proof is in the bottle.

The vines sit on well-draining sand and silt loam, teeming with the microbial life essential to organic grape growing. The vineyard work focuses on promoting natural disease resistance and vigour in their vines. Cover crops, natural sprays, careful canopy management and manual and mechanical weed control all result in stronger vines and healthier grapes.

Oxney wines are made in a converted Grade II listed square oast house, kitted out in the latest winery equipment. They believe quality winemaking relies on technology such as temperature control and gentle pneumatic pressing, yet their sustainable, low-intervention approach continues into the winery.
