Since its founding in 1978, Oakridge Wines has been making wine in the Yarra Valley and has evolved as an outstanding winery. Winners of the The Age & Sydney Morning Herald, Winery of the Year and Good Wine Guide 2012, the winery is regularly producing award winning wines of exemplary quality supported by a welcoming cellar door and restaurant. Bordered by the mountains of the Great Dividing Range and stretching across 10 hectares of landscaped vines and gardens along Maroondah Highway, the family-owned estate is dedicated to producing outstanding and distinctive wines while providing visitors with a truly memorable wine and food experience. Oakridge Wines are characterised by their restraint and finesse and demonstrate true regional and varietal expression. This is achieved by carefully sourcing fruit for each varietal from the most suitable sub-region in the Yarra Valley. Meticulous viticulture, modern winemaking technology and traditional techniques have resulted in well-balanced wines showing intense varietal flavours. The brand new architecturally designed 120 seat restaurant gives way to the most stunning views captured by floor to ceiling windows throughout. Nestled amongst the vines the dining room is a great location to sit for a long Sunday lunch or corporate celebration. With every turn of the season, head chef Josè Chavez and his team adapt the menu by creating a selection of dishes guaranteed to excite your palate with cuisine relating to the surrounding produce and flavours of the Valley. The Oakridge Restaurant and cellar door are open every day and really is the perfect venue for corporate functions, celebratory drinks, birthday functions or to celebrate your special wedding day.
