Friday, January 27, 2017 

The Oatley Family has reached agreement with Oakridge to distribute the outstanding Oakridge Wines range within Australia as of 1st February, 2017.

Oatley Fine Wine Merchants (OFWM) is Australia’s fastest growing national distributor of Australian and International wines to the trade, specialising in the on-premise and independent retail sectors.

Located in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, Oakridge is widely acknowledged as one of Australia’s outstanding wine producers.  Oakridge crafts distinctive wines from on-site vines as well as carefully selected vineyards throughout the Valley using 100% Valley fruit.

“We are delighted that Oakridge will be joining our portfolio of credentialed family-owned producers” said OFWM Chairman Andrew (Sandy) Oatley today. “The Yarra Valley is a vital component of the Australian wine landscape, with Oakridge one of the region’s (and Australia’s) best wineries and best winemaking team. Chief Winemaker David Bicknell’s inimitable winemaking talents based around the best vineyards, is delivering a superb range of exceptional wines. Talented chef Matt Stone’s superb cuisine complements the wines on-site at Coldstream.”

“This premier family-owned Yarra Valley winery fits perfectly within our portfolio of Australian producers which now ranges from Margaret River and Great Southern in WA, through SA’s Barossa, Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale, across to Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Pyrenees and Heathcote in Victoria, Tasmania, and Orange & Mudgee in our home state.”

“We have been very impressed with OFWM’s can-do business style and always putting the customer first which are also at the heart of Oakridge’s values and approach” said Tony D’Aloisio Executive Director of Oakridge.

“We are confident that with OFWM, Oakridge will continue to grow sales and build new customers and outlets as well as continuing to look after all our existing customers who we thank for their on-going support.”
