Located in the cool, dry Sunbury region, Wildwood have been quietly crafting wines of elegance and balance since 1983
In the heart of the Oaklands Valley lies Melbourne's closest winery - Wildwood. There are few wineries in the world which can claim to have a large metropolis virtually on their boundary. Located just 4km north of the Melbourne Airport, off the Tullamarine Freeway, the vineyard stands at an elevation of 132m, allowing for panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline and out to the Mornington Peninsula. As the southernmost part of the Sunbury region, we experience a cool, dry climate, lying in the shadows of Mt. Macedon. History records that great wines were made in this area from the early 1800s.
In 1983, viticulture at Wildwood was re-established by the Stott family. Classic Bordeaux varietals, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot were planted, alongside chardonnay. Further plantings of pinot noir, shiraz and viognier were made in 1988, and petit verdot was planted in 1994. We now have a total of 35 acres producing quality wines. Wildwood Vineyards has been quietly walking its own path for more than two decades, crafting wines of elegance and balance that are coveted by those who have tried them. Since establishing the vineyard in 1983, the Stott family has managed the land with care and respect, allowing their vines to express their own character as naturally as possible.
The Wildwood philosophy is simple - to produce the highest quality table wines from the outstanding fruit grown on the estate. Careful viticulture is the key to great wines, with an emphasis on maximising grape quality using sustainable agricultural techniques. Wildwood wines are recognised for their consistency and purity of varietal expression, despite the sometimes challenging nature of vintage conditions.
