Oakridge, a family-owned, Yarra Valley winery, restaurant and cellar door, originally established in 1978 alongside a ridge of oak trees.
Pioneering the wine growing region of the upper Yarra Valley, today Oakridge is an award-winning winery and an internationally recognised name. Oakridge wines can be found on restaurant menus, in bottle shops and for purchase online, but there is no better place to taste than at our home in the heart of the Yarra Valley; an hour’s drive from Melbourne, in Coldstream off the Maroondah Highway.
Today, Oakridge is still a family-owned company, supported by the Atlas/D’Aloisio family since 2007. David Bicknell, described by eminent wine writer James Halliday as “an exceptionally gifted winemaker who exemplifies all that is admirable about the movers and shakers of Australia’s wine artisans.” is our chief winemaker.
In 2012, amongst numerous awards and accolades, Oakridge was voted Australian Winery of the Year in The Age & Sydney Morning Herald Good Wine Guide. In the following year, 2013, the winery clinked champagne glasses in celebration of the new Oakridge restaurant and cellar door opening to the public. Designed by architect Denton, Corker and Marshall, the stunning new building solidified Oakridge’s place as a must-visit Yarra Valley destination.
