A TRADITION OF HANDCRAFTED WINES
Our philosophy at Bothy Vineyard is to produce the highest quality wines from grapes cultivated in as environmentally-friendly a way as possible. We continue an ancient tradition of wine making in the Vale of the White Horse, Oxfordshire. The local micro-climate, warm sandy soils, long ripening season and mature vines produce wines of consistent depth and quality which have won many awards.

We are 40 Years Old
Bothy Vineyard celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. It has successfully bottled its 2017 Vintage. After several years of being hit by late frosts, the vines came through this cold winter and spring with virtually no frost damage. The mood is optimistic.
Sian Liwicki of Bothy Vineyard said,“When the vineyard was first planted in 1978, those were pioneering days. In the early years of the industry no one knew which grapes would do best in our climate and what the productivity would look like. The founders Dorothy and Roger Fisher, however, astutely found a site with 20 feet of sand, sheltered from the winds and in a relatively dry rain shadow. It has not always been easy but forty years on we are still here and producing excellent wines. We are celebrating the founder’s foresight and extending the tradition of wine making in the Vale of the White Horse for many more years!”
