Over forty years of nurturing grapevines and making wine has taught the Oatley family many lessons. Site selection is para-mount, that ‘sense of place’, where you choose to grow your grapes is vital to both style and quality.
The Oatley approach is to overlay this philosophy with an outstanding team of grape growers and winemakers, using the best possible equipment, to allow them every chance of producing a winning wine. The task is clear: to craft wines that have varietal clarity, focus and which reflect their provenance – in a very modern fashion.
Wines of character and integrity. Australia’s specialist grape growing families are the backbone of our industry. The Oatley family draw upon select growers of excellence across a diverse range of climatic regions (with a distinct emphasis upon those of Western Australia) along with grapes from the family properties, dating back to 1858.
The key regions that the Oatley family focus on are: Margaret River [Western Australia],
Mudgee & Orange [Central Ranges, New South Wales], McLaren Vale [South Australia],
Great Southern [Western Australia], Barossa Valley [South Australia] and the Yarra Valley [Victoria]
