Oxford Landing Merlot

Oxford Landing

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.
