1855 Oxford

Our Story

“At 1855 we believe less is more"
Minimal intervention with chemicals in the vineyard and winery means maximum expression of place.

Many of our wines are produced organically and bio-dynamically, by growers who spend time in the vineyard preventing maladies and pests naturally.

This requires time, love and care - it also means less fruit is produced, but that fruit is vibrant, full of energy and speaks of its origins.

"Wines packed with energy, vitality, vibrancy and authenticity" That’s what I love to drink and share with you at 1855"  says Alistair Cooper, mastermind of 1855 Wine List,  judge at the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) and soon to be Master of Wine.

 Why "1855"

The year 1855 saw the classification of most prestigious chateaux in the Bordeaux wine region. The classification lives on today as one of the world's most famous, marking out 1855 as seminal in the history of wine.
