The Yarra Valley was Victoria’s first wine growing district, with a history stretching back over 160 years to when vines were first planted in 1838. A region used for production of cheap fortified wine for the majority of its early life, it underwent a vinous Renaissance when the planting of high-quality varieties began in the late 1960s. The Yarra Valley is now recognised as one of Australia’s foremost cool climate producers, producing light, lifted wines from a wide range of varieties; sparkling wine, fine Chardonnay, complex Pinot Noir, world class Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, all capable of outstanding quality when carefully made.
Oakridge Wines has been capturing the spirit of the Yarra Valley for more than three decades, producing premium wines that reflect the unique rich, red, volcanic soils and cool climate. In their own words; “At Oakridge we craft our wines using traditional methods and local knowledge built over 30 vintages to bring out the best of every season.
