Our cellar door, the 'Upside-Down House', offers visitors to the Bellarine Peninsula a unique tasting room to experience. Designed by owner Elizabeth Hooley, the cellar door appears to be an A frame timber house that has been blown over in the wind, with the roof line on the ground and timber stumps exposed. Recycled and re-claimed timbers feature extensively throughout the interior, coupled with contemporary design and facilities to complete a spectacular and very functional tasting room capable of catering for both small and larger groups, located a short walk from Oakdene Restaurant.
Our cellar door is manned by a passionate,small team of Bellarine Peninsula locals who, over the years, have developed an intimate understanding of our region and a deep knowledge of our wines. The team are always keen to talk you through our range of award winning wines, show you around the property or help you decide which wines to take home with you. There are also extra virgin olive oils from the Lighthouse olive grove and gifts to peruse.

2014 STAR CELLAR DOOR: OAKDENE by Jeni Port
‘It’s hard to decide what is more outrageous, the upside-down house that operates as a cellar door or the interpretative sculpture junk tree in the driveway fused together with vineyard flotsam and jetsam. Oakdene is definitely unique in its decorating, courtesy of co-owner Elizabeth Hooley, but the quirky décor is proving to be a huge draw card for the Bellarine Peninsula winery. The wines, however, deserve equal attention. Oakdene offers some of the best value for money wines on the Bellarine Peninsula headed by chardonnay, pinot noir and shiraz. Sauvignon blanc does well in the maritime climate and Oakdene produces a standard style, all crisp, crunchy and herbal, as well as a bottle-aged wild thing called Jessica, full of spice and complexity. Stay for a meal in the restaurant, and Oakdene also sells orchids, lots of them, from its nursery out back.
