Oxford Landing Estate is, so the website tells us, ‘A real place, a real vineyard. A place distinguished by clear blue skies, rich red soil and an abundance of golden sunshine'. In the 60+ years since the vineyard was planted, the brand has grown to reach all corners of the world. Success has been due to over-delivery against expectations at its price points and it has largely escaped the scorn of the UK wine press. In 2008 a five-year experiment began to determine whether a block of vines could survive and produce an annual crop with only 10% of the normal irrigation. The result showed that the vines could survive but with a crop production of between 40% and 65%. There is also 1ha of native vegetation for every 1ha of vineyard. Exports to the UK, the US and NZ.
At Oxford Landing, we like to ‘keep it real’. That means maintaining a sense of perspective and recognising what really matters. Remembering where we came from and being proud of our roots. And making wines that are a true reflection of the place they come from.
