Oakridge Wines has been capturing the spirit of the Yarra Valley for more than three decades.

Established near Seville in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, Oakridge Wines began as a family company. A pioneer of the Upper Yarra Valley, Oakridge recognised the potential for making great wine on the rich, red, volcanic soils of the sub-region.

The turn of the century saw Oakridge move to its location in Coldstream, and become a part of one of Australia’s larger wine companies.

In recent times, Oakridge once again returned to family ownership.
