At Oasis, we view winemaking as a science, an art, and an experience. The. science of our winemaking comes from our University of California, Davis, trained Enologists, graduates of the worlds leading educational institution for winemaking. The art of winemaking begins in the vineyard with hand nurtured grapes picked at their peak, then slowly fermented in a diverse array of tanks and barrels to enhance and bring out the best the fruit can offer. Our experience dates back to 1977 when Oasis planted some of the first Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines in Virginia.
A visit to the Oasis Winery will give you the unique opportunity to discover one of. the world's leading wine producers offering a full line of premium wines and sparkling wines. These wines consistently win gold medals in the most prestigious international and national wine competitions. The Oasis Winery has a capacity of 100,000 gallons. One-third is devoted to the production of our international award winning sparkling wines, which are produced in the traditional method "Méthode Champenoise," whereby the wine goes through a second fermentation in its individual bottle. This is identical to that method utilized in the Champagne region of France.
Around Oasis are a great number of bed-and-breakfasts, championship golf courses, antique stores as well as some of the finest restaurants in the world. So, if you are in the mood for romance, or to enjoy fine wines and sparkling wines, or simply want a picnic outing in the country, come and be our welcome guest as you experience Oasis with us and discover that.
