Yileena Park is a family owned Cellar Door, Winery and Vineyard located in the beautiful Yarra Valley just one hour drive north east of Melbourne.
The vineyard was established in 1998 and comprises of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It is situated on a north facing slope at the base of the Christmas Hills which keep it cool and protected. And the grey loam soil surfaced over a rock studded clay base make it ideal for growing premium wine grapes. The vineyard is pruned to produce between 1-2 tones of fruit per acre which allows the vines the opportunity to completely ripen the fruit. Our watering system is an American Sub-surface drip irrigation type, which delivers the water and organic liquid fertilizer directly to the vine’s roots. It allows for excellent control over our watering which we judiciously monitor.
We have two friendly donkeys, Poppy and Freckles who love to welcome you on arrival and bid you farewell as you leave.
Yileena Park offers a range of boutique wines including aged red wines which have been cellared for minimum four years and also have museum wines dating from 2000. All our wines showcase the unique characteristics of the Yarra Valley. We use our old French Oak barrels to cold smoke a range of cheeses, nuts, olives, olive oil, dukkah, vinegar, salts and a selection of ham meats to compliment our wine.
Yileena Park Cellar Door is open 7 days a week from 11am-5pm. Bookings are advised.
