Oakridge Winery is a magnificent award winning winery and restaurant near Healesville on the Maroondah Highway. The property is spectacular, as you wind along the road past a superb lake up to the winery. Another great place to take out of towners! The cellar door is large and the staff super friendly. Of course the product speaks for itself!
The class and quality is amazing, as are the views, but the ambience is friendly and relaxed! Rustic pleasure! Relax on one of the lounges and take in the sweeping views of the vineyards! Or go next door to the outstanding restaurant and enjoy top class fine dining.
A great option is to grab a platter – either a cheese platter or a chocolate platter. We grabbed both. The cheese platter is wonderful – the two weeks in a row I visited it featured Tasmanian Cheddar, local brie and a blue vein that was sensational. All served with crackers and tasty jam.
The antipasto platter is highly acclaimed and another great reason to recline in the light filled restaurant with large windows and take in that view!
The menu options also included Pan roasted duck breast, local cumquat and sherry glaze and braised red cabbage or Rolled lamb shoulder, Mt Zero lentil and rainbow chard braise, baby carrots, and Kalamata olive jus.
Oakridge is all class and is one of my favourite destinations in the Yarra Valley. And as for the views!
