Clyde Park Vineyard was established in 1979 when the varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were planted on the property.
Further plantings since have increased the vineyard to 35 acres, expanding the original Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and adding Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. In all we have 7 clones of Pinot Noir, 6 clones of Chardonnay, 2 clones of Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc and a sole clone of Pinot Gris.
The site consists of undulating north easterly slopes. The soil varies from silt/clay to sandy loam with basalt over a limestone base. Plantings on our north easterly slope provide exposure to sunlight, whilst the river flat area offers warmth and wind protection. Viticulturally the site produces premium fruit of low yields providing balanced wines of great purity, complexity and finesse.
We have owned Clyde Park for more than 15 years and have concentrated on developing premium quality cool climate wines, which today are sold across Australia and recently we have begun to export.
We are proud to be a James Halliday 5 star rated vineyard for a number of years, and our wines have won numerous awards.
About the Bistro
Clyde Park are proud to announce our award of Best Casual Dining Restaurant in the Golden Plate Awards 2012
The bistro commenced 7 years ago so that we could provide our cellar door customers a unique experience within our winery with a desire to serve food that has a home cooked feel and dishes that are familiar to us. We are expanding our offer constantly so you can continue to enjoy at home or for gift giving.
There is no better way to explain our Bistro than for you to come visit and enjoy a day of great food and amazing wines.

Much of our produce, vegetables and herbs are grown in our two vegetable gardens at the vineyard. Our chickens give us a great supply of eggs during the year. The bread, cakes and pastries are all made on site. The pizza dough recipe we have been using for the last seven years and has proved very popular with our customers.
We have a philosophy of using local produce and due to our location our radius is approximately 200 kilometres. We use Istra Smallgoods, Barwon Lamb, Bannockburn Chicken, Western Plains Pork, Sage Beef Bannockburn, Sher Waygu & Meredith Cheeses. If we are unable to source a local product that is suitable we will look to France and Italy to supplement our range.
