The Wood Park wines vineyard is managed with a commitment to minimal chemical use. Wine making is a mix of traditional and modern techniques including plenty of hand plunging in open fermenters and use of wild yeasts.
In what has become quite an expansive repertoire, Wood Park Wines draws on fruit sourced from the diverse micro-climates within the King Valley and surrounds, ranging in altitude from 250m to 800m above sea level. Cabernet, Shiraz, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Zinfandel, Petit Verdot, Viognier and Roussane are grown in gravelly clay on the warmer home block at Wood Park. The Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris varietals are from the cool Whitlands plateau in the south end of King Valley and Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc come from the high ridges of Myrrhee with Chardonnay from Meadow Creek.
Wood Park’s cellar door opened at the Milawa Cheese Factory in 2002.
Passionate and learned presenter made for an unforgettable experience.
