About the winery

Oxney Organic Estate is the largest organic vineyard in the UK. We are down a tiny lane in Beckley, East Sussex - between Rye and Tenterden. Visit our lovely tasting room and shop or join us for a guided tour. We make organic still and sparkling wines using only our own grapes and have a very low intervention, natural winemaking ethos. The vineyard is part of an 850 acre organic farming estate with old barns converted into lovely holiday cottages and, located in the vineyard, wonderful shepherd's huts.

History & Geography

The vineyard at Oxney Organic Estate is located in the south east corner of East Sussex, in Beckley, six miles north of Rye. The area is becoming a new wine region with vineyards planted along the old Rother river delta. The vineyard is part of the founders’ - Kristin Syltevik and Paul Dobson - vision of modern farming that’s environmentally sound, natural and sustainable. The estate is organic and certified by the Soil Association. The winery is located in an old converted grade II listed oast house. The organic system at Oxney - under vine tillage for weed control and a natural approach to disease control - produces healthy, balanced and natural fruit. This approach is replicated in the winery where the organic low intervention regime is focused around small batch winemaking where each variety and clone are pressed and fermented separately, followed by careful blending decisions.
