Fine wine, magnificent views and luscious fruit are what you can expect from the Clyde Park Vineyard. The setting on the truly unique hills surrounding the Moorabool River, 30 kilometres north of Geelong, Victoria, places Clyde Park at the forefront of cool climate viticulture. It’s almost 40 years since Gary Farr selected the Clyde Park site for his first own project —a worthy foil to the Bannockburn vineyard that he planted for Stuart Hooper only a few years prior. Those original plantings were supplemented by Gary over the years (including the densely planted and low-trellised Burgundian ‘F Block’), as well as by Terry Jongebloed and Sue Dixon, who purchased the estate almost 20 years ago.
The vineyard is laced with multiple variations in soil and aspect that it offer an amazing resource of ‘complete’ parcels for single vineyard bottlings, as well as providing the diversity to craft ‘Estate’ wines of great complexity and harmony.
