James' Review

Bernard and Elizabeth Hooley purchased Oakdene in 2001. Bernard focused on planting the vineyard (shiraz, pinot gris, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, chardonnay, merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon) while Elizabeth worked to restore the 1920s homestead. Much of the wine is sold through the award-winning Oakdene Restaurant and cellar door. The quality is exemplary, as is the consistency of that quality; Robin Brockett’s skills are on full display. A new vineyard (11km from Oakdene) planted in ’17 (to shiraz, pinot noir, pinot gris, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, merlot, riesling, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon) has increased the plantings from 12ha to 32ha.

About

Established in 2001, Oakdene‘s 12 hectare boutique vineyard is located in Wallington (near Ocean Grove) on the Bellarine Peninsula, approximately 20kms east of Geelong and 90kms South of Melbourne. The region enjoys a cool, maritime climate moderating our weather patterns, resulting in a long cool growing season; producing low yields of high quality fruit.

Specialities

Specialising in the varieties best suited to the region, chardonnay, pinot noir, shiraz, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris and small amounts of merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. Our hand crafted wines are elegant, whilst reflecting varietal character and complexity.
