We believe that the finest things in life are those that allow Mother Nature’s beauty to shine bright - it’s this philosophy of minimal intervention that inspires the winemaking craft of Oakvale Wines.
Our practices respect the sustainable way of life, from growing grapes that are nurtured in the vineyard, to making wine that truly reflects the region and the natural elements from which it came.
This inspiration takes us on an annual journey from the vineyard to the bottle. Every year presents a new set of challenges and hard work, allowing us to be creative & handcraft with passion.
We are lucky to experience this every year during vintage.
The Oakvale Event Trilogy was created to take you, our Members, on this annual journey making our Purpura Pedes wines and becoming an integral part of the story.
It’s an opportunity for you to be part of the winemaking process from initiation to completion. Shapeshifting you from your everyday life to that of a Winemaker three times a year with a half day in the vineyard & winery hand picking, sorting, stomping & crushing in February; returning in October to assist with the blending process; culminating in June the following year, picking your favourite bottle number, signing the labels, signifying your input, releasing the wines & celebrating success over a grand dinner.
A Winemaker and his team’s lifestyle would not be complete without “quality control”, continually sampling wines paired with fabulous food, like-minded company & good cheer!
We ensure there is plenty of opportunity for this whilst creating the very limited Purpura Pedes wines...
Come, join us and be a part of the Purpura Pedes story and be a part of the Oakvale Family.
