Oakley Wine Agencies

Specialists in wines from Portugal and Northwest Spain


Originally established in 1990, Oakley Wine Agencies specialises in the wines of Portugal and Northwest Spain. Brazil has recently been added to our portfolio.

All our winery partners are family estates with a passion for quality, while giving real value for money.

Portugal has enjoyed an upswing in sales over the last three or four years, particularly in the old classic regions of the north - Vinho Verde, Dão and Douro.  And in the south at the Falua winery we are producing a high quality Arinto and Alicante Bouschet, made jointly by Antonina Barbosa and Sam Harrop MW, promoting high quality and top value wines from a single variety.  In Vinho Verde, our new partners Casal de Ventozela make fantastic wines from single varieties Arinto and Loureiro, while at Cazas Novas, the newly launched Avesso single varietal wine has proved a popular success. Indeed production in 2014 vintage was quadruple the level of the 2013.  And watch out for the Dão, a sleeping giant that is fast re-awakening, with classic cherry reds of great style and acidity.


International reach

We act as agents for our vineyards in the British and Irish markets. 

We also represent several in the Norwegian market, working in partnership with Symposium Wines AS. 

Customers from as far afield as China, Dubai, Mumbai, Doha and Abu Dhabi buy from our UK bonded stock range. 

In the UK, independent traders as far afield as Northern Ireland, Scotland and Cornwall also take from our bonded UK stock


We only deal with wine trade customers, but we are happy to direct enquiries from the public to one of our retailers or wholesalers


We sell our range of wines in two ways


1.  Ex cellars - all markets

90% of our business is conducted in this way.  Please ask for our Ex Cellars price list


2.  Under Bond - 10 dozen mixed drops (aimed at the independent merchant) - UK trade only

Wine can be delivered to your own bonded store, or delivered to a duty paid location against payment of excise duty (either by deferment, transfer, or cheque).  Our UK stock* lies at London City Bond - Tilbury depot - and transfers within this depot are subject to a modest discount.  As few as five case can be ordered for collection or transfer at LCB.  Prices are close to Ex Cellar - a very popular way of increasing your Portuguese and Spanish portfolio with only modest inventory costs.

Most of our wines would retail between £6.59 and £12.99, with many below the ten pound mark

* vintages - the vintage we hold in UK stock may be behind the vintage available at the vineyard, that is in the nature of shipped stock.  Please double check if in doubt

Please find our November 2016 - May 2017 'Under Bond' price list here

We have no DPD or retail interests

We refer all enquiries to the appropriate distributor.  We do not compete with our clients
