About

CLYDE PARK VINEYARD & BISTRO, BANNOCKBURN est.1979

Discover the Moorabool Valley, taste exceptional hand crafted cool climate wines & enjoy our gourmet foods made with outstanding local produce at our Bistro.


Clyde Park uncomprising approach to winemaking & viticulture has put it to the forefront of the Geelong region growth as a premium wine region of Australia.

This approach has seen Clyde Park awarded the RED 5 star rating again in James Halliday’s 2012 Wine Companion, along with making his TOP 100 wines lists in 2004, 2005, 2006 & 2007. As well the Clyde Park Pinot Noir was recognized in Campbell Mattinson new book of TOP 101 Reds in Australia.

With some of Geelong’s oldest vines in this cool climate region our approach in the vine-yard is very much a hands on technique, whilst in the winery we adopt a hand’s off ap-proach of allowing the fruit and terroir to come alive in every bottle.

Our range includes aromatic whites of Sauvignon & Pinot Gris, along with the regions strengths of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.

Enjoy the delights of our Bistro overlooking the magnificent Moorabool Valley offering simple, rustic & elegant cuisine, which reflects the diversity and quality of our regional produce. Serving lunch on the weekend and public holidays from 12.00 noon. Cellar door is open from 11.00am daily. Clyde Park is available for Weddings & Private Functions.
