If you would like to visit our vineyard and other nearby attractions (we are only 7 miles south west of Oxford, and one and a half miles from Abingdon) try www.visitoxford.org.
We are members of the Thames and Chilterns Vineyard Association which organises informative and enjoyable events for wine producers and vineyard owners in the region. The association also runs annual wine competitions and tours, many of their activities happily involve food, drink and socialising! We are also members of the UK Vineyards Association which publishes helpful information for vineyards across Britain, an email information bulletin and lobbies on wine related issues on our behalf.
The English Wine Producers group coordinate English Wine Week each year at the end of May and work hard to convince the public and retailers to sit up and take notice of the high standards set by local wine producers. Another simple wine-centered website concentrating on UK vineyards is www.ukvines.co.uk.
The issues of local food and the environment are very much in the public eye nowadays. We are part of Good Food Oxford which is a network for a healthier, fairer and more sustainable and tastier food system in Oxford. Bothy has also signed up as a Good Energy partner.
The Drinkaware website is a very useful one for checking on current advice on drinking - we believe that it is quality not quantity that counts.
