Situated six miles north of Rye, in the village of Beckley in the south east corner of East Sussex, the Oxney Organic Estate has been producing award-winning organic wines since 2014. Kristein Syltevik and Paul Dobson are the owners of Oxney who planted the first vines in 2012. Sitting on well drained sand and silt loam the focus is on natural disease resistance with natural sprays, manual weed control and minimal intervention. The wines are made in a Grade II listed Oasthouse with the latest winery equipment to allow accurate temperature control, pneumatic pressing yet maintain their sustainable, low intervention approach to their winemaking. Wood chips sourced from their own coppiced woodland provides the heat in the winery.
