About Oakridge Wines
Since its founding in 1978, Oakridge has been making wine in the Yarra Valley and throughout that time has been dedicated to producing some of the finest examples of cool climate wine styles seen in Australia
Bordered by the mountains of the Great Dividing Range, the vineyards of the Yarra Valley stretch across a spectacular landscape, creating a panorama of unrivalled beauty. From the first plantings in the 1800's when James Ryrie carried 600 vine cuttings overland from Sydney to settle in the region, the Yarra Valley has been considered to be one of the premium wine regions of Australia. The Valley's cool climate provides a long ripening period which produces wines of intense varietal flavour, finesse and elegance. Wines that when consumed young have immediate appeal but will age gracefully with careful cellaring.
About the Oatley Winery
The Oatley Wines story is of the legendary Oatley family themselves, supported by an outstanding group of extended family and friends
The Oatleys have played an important part in the Australian wine industry since their first vintage at Rosemount Estate in 1974. Those wines were the predecessors of many hundreds of highly awarded and recognised bottlings of fine Australian wine under the Oatley family direction. With the 2001 merger of Rosemount to Southcorp Wines and the subsequent sale of Southcorp to Foster’s in 2005, the Oatleys decided to re-enter the wine business. Logically they followed their calling back to the vineyard and established Oatley Wines, quickly gathering a team of extended family and friends to do the job.
More About Old Plains Winery
The challenge began when it was decided to fashion hand made wines from precious fruit grown to superlative sites which escaped the vine pull of the 1980s
The Longhop and Old Plains range of wines are produced by Domenic Torzi and Tim Freeland. The former Gawler high school mates first mooted the idea of making icon wines from the Adelaide Plains in 2002. Vineyards were secured, the requirement being old vines a priority. The small band of growers have embraced the ideal of delivering premium grapes in order to showcase the power and rich fruit flavours the Adelaide Plains has to offer.
More About OLeary Walker Wines
O'Leary Walker Wines is the culmination of two like minded winemakers that met over twenty years ago
Established in 2001 by David O'Leary and Nick Walker, their philosophy is pretty simple, source the best grapes from the best vineyard sites and craft great wine. O'Leary Walker is based at Leasingham in the Clare Valley, South Australia, but they don't limit themselves to producing just Clare Valley wines. O'Leary Walker also source fruit from other premium grape growing districts in South Australia including the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale. The theory behind this is to draw on the grape varieties that excel in these quite different viticultural climates.
About the Olivers Taranga Winery
In 1839 William and Elizabeth Oliver travelled to South Australia from Berwick in Roxburghshire, Scotland eventually settling on land at McLaren Vale
Whitehill and Taranga farms, the names given to the northern and southern sections of this land, are located 2 km north of McLaren Vale overlooking the township. Taranga is a corruption of the aboriginal word Tarangk, meaning ‘the middle’ which was used by the Kaurna, a local aboriginal tribe. Sheep and cattle were raised and orchards and vineyards were planted immediately upon arrival and the family prospered. William and Elizabeth are buried in a marble crypt, with three of their ten children beside them, in the family cemetery on the northern edge of the Taranga property.

About Oxford Landing Wines
A Real Vineyard, Oxford Landing is the perfect environment for growing grapes with vibrant, fruity flavours
Oxford Landing is a real place, a real vineyard. A place distinguished by clear blue skies, rich red soil and an abundance of golden sunshine.

About the Oyster Bay Winery
From its very first vintage, which won gold and the coveted Marquis de Goulaine Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc at the 22nd International Wine & Spirit Competition in London 1991, Oyster Bay has continued to define the very essence of Marlborough
Set in the alluvial heart of Marlborough, one of the world's most recognised wine-growing regions and a place as beautiful as it is abundant, you will find the vineyards that grew the reputation of Oyster Bay. Here, on the shallow stony soils of the tranquil Wairau Plains, where long, slow summers and cool autumn nights give birth to grapes of intense and fruity flavours, Oyster Bay began, from the very outset, to produce wines of international stature.
