Most Successful Exhibitor Gippsland Wine Show 2009
The winery and vineyard was established in 1982 with the name "Wild Dog" coming from the nearby township of Warragul that is derived from the Aboriginal word "Warrigal" meaning dingo or wild dog. In 2009 Wild Dog was presented with the "Most Successful Exhibitor" award at the annual Gippsland Wine Show.
Experience the taste of Gippsland
Wild Dog Winery invites you to experience the seasonal A La Carte Dinner Menu or relax on the deck in picturesque vineyard settings, enjoying a light brunch or lunch, taking in the atmosphere that is uniquely Wild Dog, whilst enjoying the range of award winning cool climate wines.
Wines: Extensive range of sparkling, table and dessert wines, including some exclusively to cellar door wines.
'In the heart of Gippsland's fertile dairy country, Wild Dog is a lovely place to visit. A long tree-lined driveway leads down through rich farmland, grazing cows, and tree-topped hills to the winery and cellar door. A new restaurant takes advantage of the superb views with large windows and a generously proportioned outdoor deck area, while a wetlands environment is being developed for visitors to stroll through. It's excellent white wine country with Chardonnay and Riesling the highlights, but Shiraz is evolving in quality as the vineyard matures.' RALPH KYTE-POWELL
Just over 1 hour drive east of Melbourne along the Princes Freeway and 3 kilometres south of the Warragul turnoff.
