Oxney is now the largest organic vineyard in the UK having recently planted an additional 6 hectares of vines, with a total of 14 hectares. The vineyard, 17 meters above sea level and six miles from the English Channel, surrounds the winery and from a south-west slope stretches out towards a wood with giant oak trees, creating a warm and protected microclimate.
