Oxford Landing is a real place, a real vineyard. A place distinguished by clear blue skies, rich red soil and an abundance of golden sunshine. Established in 1958 on the banks of the majestic Murray River in South Australia, the vineyard was named Oxford Landing after a nearby site where drovers once grazed and watered sheep on the long journey to Adelaide from northern pastoral properties.
Oxford Landing Estates has no available wines.
Growing up in the Barossa Valley inevitably led to an interest in all things wine for Andy La Nauze, but this was not where he initially began.
A career in Radiography was considered yet short lived when he found he was being drawn back towards the thing he loved – wine. Andy embarked on further study, finishing a BA Agricultural Science Oenology at Adelaide University in 2001. Various vintages with St Hallett in the Barossa, Norfolk Rise at Mt Benson and a season in Alsace served as his apprenticeship.
Keen to return to South Australia, Andy joined Yalumba in 2004, assisting winemakers Peter Gambetta and Kevin Glastonbury with crafting Yalumba’s red wines.
Andy crafted the outstanding Yalumba Y Series portfolio of wines, made from renowned South Australian regions for some 6 years, and in July 2012 was chosen to take the reins of Oxford Landing Estates, where his deft hand will express a balance of both regional and varietal character.
