Oakdene Vineyards Restaurant & Cellar Door

????????

This vineyard is on the Bellarine Peninsula, just outside Geelong. Their cellar door is in a new, upside-down house at the end of the driveway. That is just one indication of the eclectic mix of buildings and sculptures on the property.

It’s really interesting to walk around and look at everything. They have a sign near the gate that says ‘browsers welcome’ which is nice and made us comfortable wandering around.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to try any of the wines. They sell a good variety of cool-climate wines. Our visit coincided with a bus load of wine-tasters and although I went in to try some wine the staff were concentrating on serving the others. We were a little early for lunch so didn’t get to see the restaurant or try the food but they have received a good rating in the current Good Food Guide.

I wondered how long they took to collect all these bikes and how long they had them. I was joking about people leaving their bikes after trying the wines at the cellar door.
