Set on the banks of South Australia’s majestic Murray River, the Oxford Landing vineyard is named after a nearby site where drovers once grazed and watered sheep. Today it’s home to a loyal flock of down-to-earth folk who take great pride in making quality wines, enjoyed the world over.
Oxford Landing founder, Wyndham Hill-Smith was a significant player in the birth of the modern Australian wine industry. Great-grandson of Samuel Smith who established Yalumba in 1849, Wyndham had wine in his blood. He led Australia's renaissance from fortifieds to table wine during the 1960's and 1970's, introducing new labels and wine styles to meet the nation’s changing palate. He also liked a punt on the horses, was a talented landscape painter and even represented Australia against England and South Africa in the cricket. He was certainly a busy man and an interesting dinner party guest.
Over the last decade, Oxford Landing has tripled in size with the creation of a beautiful native forest adjacent to the vineyard. Water is also very important to them. While they are reliant on the Murray River, they’re never complacent about irrigation methods. It’s all about sustainable winemaking.
