Clyde Park

Clyde Park Vineyard was originally planted in Geelong by regional icon Gary Farr way back in 1979, before later selling them on. They are now in the talented hands of Terry Jongebloed and Sue Jongebloed-Dixon who's attention to detail have allowed them to year in year out produce high quality wines which are always highly rated by James Halliday earning their winery 5 Red Stars and bags full of medals.

The vineyard currently has 35 acres, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. In all they have 7 clones of Pinot Noir, 6 clones of Chardonnay, 2 clones of Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc and a sole clone of Pinot Gris. The site consists of undulating north easterly slopes. The soil varies from silt/clay to sandy loam with basalt over a limestone base. Plantings on our north easterly slope provide exposure to sunlight, whilst the river flat area offers warmth and wind protection. Viticulturally the site produces premium fruit of low yields producing balanced wines of great purity, complexity and finesse.
