wines, Oakridge just gets better with each passing year.”

“Jo Barrett and Matt Stone are so anchored in the Yarra Valley that each menu reveals the region in new and delicious ways. This is food that takes a position – strictly regional, avowedly sustainable – but displays equally fanatical devotion to diner enjoyment.”

“Oakridge features a striking cellar door and dining room, with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the impressive valley views. Kickstart your visit by working your way through David Bicknell’s exceptional range of single-block chardonnays, pinot noirs and syrahs, before taking a seat for lunch, peppered with foraged greens and freshly picked mushrooms.”
