We were welcomed at this spectacular setting by Iain who immediately made us feel like cherished guests!
The wine tasting set under splendid autumn day could not have been more perfect. The wine was delicious and although we tried several we were hard pressed to decide on a favourite. ..each wine is fabulous and so very worth the drive to Oatley Vineyards! !

Having tasted one of the wines at a nearby restaurant we went there on a wet December morning (pre-booking required) obviously way out of season for the vineyard visit. We were welcomed into the winemakers house and sat chatting over some really delicious wines.
Thoroughly recommended

We visited Oatley Vineyard this weekend just gone, we had such a lovely time, trying all the wines, walking round the vineyard being told all about the grapes and the history of this family run business. Jane and her husband were very friendly. We drank wine and had a picnic which was lovely. I would definitely recommend if you are a lover of white wine! All of the wines we tasted were really great & we purchased quite a few bottles!!

I'd pre-booked a visit and tasting at Oatley and was pleasantly greeted by Iain who's exceptional knowledge introduced us to both Oatley wines and answered any general questions. The vines sit in a perfect plot of land and we were lucky to have the sun up ahead which made the experience more magical. The wines had a unique flavour and exceeded my expectations - my favourite is the Leonora 2013. I would definitely go back and buy some more bottles - a great activity day for me and my friends.

The vineyard is off the beaten track at the very end of a narrow lane. You've just got to keep the faith and keep driving until you reach it and ignore the sat nav instructions to do a u-turn. It is well worth it. We were there for a private birthday celebration on a bright, warm day and the vineyard looked beautiful. It is very small and non-commercial and the wines are made off site but we had a tour and did some wine tasting. The owners were very welcoming and hospitable and Ian led an informative tasting session. We took out own picnic-there is no food available on site- and were able to put it in the outdoor wine fridge. We had a long wooden table under a gazebo so we were well shaded from the heat. Jane and Ian laid the table beautifully with wild roses and empty wine bottles. All in all a very pretty, laid-back and interesting place for a summer celebration. I believe it is open at weekends but only by arrangement at other times but the website is very good and has all the information.I would certainly recommend it for a group gathering for a special occasion.
