Ch-Ch-Changes work out well for Oakridge Wines


Wine lovers are often concerned when one of their favourite producers is sold. 

More so when an independent winery is snapped up by a business conglomerate. 

What will change? Will corporate toe-cutters strike?  

There were certainly fears for the future direction of Yarra Valley icon Oakridge Estate when, at the start of the year, it was sold to Endeavour Drinks which was then part of Woolworths.

Endeavour has since demerged from Woolworths, prompting further questions. 

Winemaker David Bicknell (above) describes it as "a tumultuous year" - but reports all is well aboard the good ship Oakridge. 

"Importantly, the more things have changed, the more they have remained the same," Bicknell says in a media release. 

"We have been granted the autonomy and given the backing to get on with making Oakridge what it should always have been - wine focused and appropriately resourced. 

"Winemaking technique is unchanged, the team is intact and the will and spirit to make good wines are stronger than ever."
