Oakdene

Oakdene

Oakdene is more than just a winery, it is an experience.

Oakdene is situated on 93 hectares of coastal farmland in Wallington on the Bellarine Peninsula. Approximately 20 kilometres east of Geelong and 90km south of Melbourne and features an award-winning cellar door, restaurant and café.

Established in 2001, Oakdene produces wines which are complex and elegant with the region enjoying a maritime climate, producing low yields of high-quality fruits.  Oakdene produces both still and sparkling wines and specialises in chardonnay, pinot noir, shiraz, pinot gris and sauvignon blanc.

The winery’s dedication to excellence has produced incredible results, with wines winning medals and trophies at major shows holding a consistent five red star rating in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion.

Visitors can experience guided tastings at Oakdene’s unique cellar door, the Upside-Down House, and sample estate-grown, extra-virgin olive oils. The Upside-Down House is manned by a small team of locals who have developed an intimate understanding of the region and a deep knowledge of Oakdene wines.

A visit to Oakdene would not be complete without a dining experience at fine dining restaurant, Marty @ Oakdene.  A la carte and degustation menus using local produce can be enjoyed in the dining room or spectacular gardens. There are also three beautifully appointed themed guest rooms available within the restored 1920s homestead.

For diners who prefer casual fare, Mr Grubb @ Oakdene is nestled among a mass of birch trees and offers a relaxed atmosphere with a seasonal menu.  Visitors are also welcome to wander the extensive gardens and appreciate the many artworks displayed throughout the property.
