Oakdene Wines are made in small quantities, from high quality fruit, produced in low yields using meticulous vine management.  The wines are elegant, complex and reflect the true varietal character of the region.

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

At Oakdene we specialise 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.

Dedication to excellence in the vineyard and winery has produced immediate results, with our wines being awarded medals and trophies in major wine shows, and a 5 star rating in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion for the past five years.

Oakdene wines are available to sample at our amazing cellar door situated in our ‘Up Side Down House’ standing proud at the end of the long driveway. We are open daily from 10am-4pm for tastings or purchases. Our wines can also be purchased by visiting our web site. Large groups are welcome for tastings, by appointment only.

The fine dining Oakdene Vineyards Restaurant offers award winning a la carte dining, degustation menus and now you can relax in front of the open fire in Mrs Hockings Bar on Friday and Saturday nights and enjoy tapas style dishes from $9.00. Oakdene Vineyards Restaurant is open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and dinner from Wednesday to Saturday.

Alternatively, you can sample our new daily breakfast menu in Mr Grubb Café from 9:30am, or enjoy a casual lunch (7 days) or dinners on Friday & Saturday nights. Mr Grubb offers an exciting menu of share plates, pizzas, burgers and is family friendly for foodies on a budget. Sit inside surrounded by artistic renderings by renowned artist David Bromley, or dine outside on the decking amongst the magnificent birch trees.
