Oakdene

Victoria | Geelong

Our 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. Export to Hong Kong.
