Little Oak Vineyard Ltd is owned by Steve Wilson and his Spanish partner Maria Segurola. It was first planted in 2006 with 400 Siegerrebe vines.

The site is Cotswold limestone derived, with a heavy but well drained soil. Predominantly it faces north – south. The Google Earth elevations shows the gentle slope of the site. It covers approximately 1 hectare. The site falls gently from the north west corner to the south east corner and falls 17 feet over the distance.

The first crop was from the 400 vines planted in 2006 and was in Autumn 2009. The first wine tasted was 2010 when 370 bottles were yielded from about 400kg of grapes. The wine had an excellent reception locally and was quickly sold (or consumed by friends) The wine is crisp and fresh, with a good nose. Very much akin to drinking a quality Pinot Grigio but with a more perfumed nose and aromas.

In 2010 a further 1300 vines were planted, 900 of these being Siegerrebe and the rest Seyval Blanc vines.
