    A gem
    This is a gem of a winery with beautiful gardens, excellent wines and service. Thanks to Betty for looking after us so well with our tasting and courtesy phone call. Really enjoyed the ambience and the history of this gorgeous part of the world in McClaren Vale.

    Favourite wine tasting in McLaren Vale
    Totally recommend visiting this cellar door. It is more relaxed than others in the region and very very friendly. It was also more reasonably priced than most at $15 per person for 5 wines. You could choose either 5 white, 5 red or a mixture. The server was extremely friendly and knowledgable and great fun. We sat in a conservatory looking out on the beautiful gardens whilst enjoying the amazing wines.

    Afternoon of sun, wine and music
    Spent a couple of hours here listening to live music by a local duet and enjoyed the Fox Creek wines. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the sunny lawn topped it off. We also enjoyed a light lunch.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Casual relaxed outdoor wine tasting conducted in beautiful garden. Staff perhaps could be more attentive and speedy with service.

We came here to taste a few wines. We were served by the lovely Ella who made our experience so much better. She was effusive and knowledgeable. Sitting out in the gorgeous garden enjoying the sun was a fabulous experience.

The wine tasting experience received today 31st March was very disappointing from previous visits. The service has evolved from a welcoming warm try everything one to a colder and limited tasting experience curated to specific groups of wines that might not meet personal preferences. It certainly failed to meet my fellow travelers and mine today. We did by some wines from the curated list but I feel they are missing more sales opportunities by the limited curated tasting options currently available. Very disappointing and I will be trying the more open wine tasting opportunities elsewhere in the McClaren vale in the future.

Hi 935bredaf, thank you for visiting us recently and for leaving your feedback. We are sorry to hear that your experience didn't meet your expectations on this occasion. We have been offering wine tasting flights for a number of years now, and it is typically the norm across many cellar doors in the region. Our wine flights offer curated selection of our wines. As we have a large portfolio, we find it to be more helpful to show our guests through different flights to show the best of what we offer. We do try to be flexible of course and if there was a certain wine you were looking to try we always try to accomodate. We will be investigating internally at what happened on this particular occasion so we can raise both your concerns and address what can be done in the future to ensure better customer experiences with similar situations. Again, we very much appreciate your feedback, and do hope that we have another opportunity in the future to give you a great experience at Fox Creek.

We celebrated my wife's special birthday with a day at Fox Creek Wines. It was a fabulous day with friendly staff who set up our party of 21 under the trees, with entertainment for the kids and excellent service. The food was delicious, the wines even more so, and the staff so friendly and helpful. Thank you all for making it a very special day for all our family and friends.
