Crooked River Wines was established in 1998 and is a proud family owned and operated winery. It is situated on the beautiful south coast of New South Wales, Gerringong.

Our vineyard was established in 1998 in the rich volcanic alluvial soil of Gerringong, – a valley between the mountains and the sea.

The commercial winery was completed in 2001 and now consists of 280,000 litres of stainless steel fermentation and storage tanks and 70,000 litres of oak barrels. After 16 years of business Crooked River Winery has won multiple awards and is now the largest vineyard on the South Coast.

Crooked River produces premium quality red and white wines.

OUR VINES = Natural methods. Hand beaten grapes. Premium French & American oak barrels

I have read a comment relating to a recent wedding and thought that I would suppress their negative and poor comments. I was at a wedding at the vineyard in November, please see picture attached and can honestly say that my friends wedding looked absolutely fantastic, not to mention the herself (the bride x). The food was beautiful, the view... More

Had an fantastic time at the vineyard with friends and family. Craft beer was exceptional, didn't know they did craft beer? Food was fantastic, its never easy finding a restaurant or good cafe on the South Coast that actually provides great food & service in one. The view is spectacular, have been to other vineyards on the Coast but never... More

Greeted by friendly and attentive staff at the restaurant. Pork belly and lamb shanks - yum. Excellent chardonnay and cab sav. Up at the cellar door offered tastings of the wine we wanted and a good discussion with the owner. A very good find and would go back there again.

My boyfriend and I recently spent a relaxing long weekend at the Estate house at Crooked River Winery. We had a great Sunday long lunch at the restaurant with friends and cellar door tastings beforehand. We really enjoyed the Saddleback Mountain red and sparkling shiraz. The excellent views over the vineyard, great variety of wines and welcoming staff make for... More

My husband and I dropped in to the winery hoping to grab a coffee before starting our trip home, what a stunning setting! We sat looking over all the grapevines towards the hills, just gorgeous. Would love to have a meal there one day preferably lunch so we can enjoy more of the view. Coffee could be better and maybe... More

My fiancé surprised me with a visit to Crooked River Wines over the weekend and it was truly amazing. Having booked the Estate accomodation we finally came to a conclusion that we will be having our wedding at the vineyard. Couldn't be happier with entire weekend. Highly recommend getting down to Crooked River.

I was interested to read a couple of the more recent reviews about the cellar door. It seems that people have mixed the cellar door and the Oak Room Eleven restaurant - something that I am also guilty of doing. Perhaps it's because the cellar door and the restaurant share a building, décor and uniform, not to mention a website!... More

As we arrived we took in the beautiful views of the valley / ocean all around the vineyard. On our entry to the Cellar Door we were asked abruptly if we had a booking to do a wine tasting. While we didn't have a booking for a tasting, we had made a booking for the restaurant weeks prior. We were... More

We came here for a wedding this week and the location and wines were perfection, but portion sizes of the meals weren't big enough, and according to the bride and groom at the tasting they were at least twice the size. Dessert was not good. Like any wedding there were a couple hiccups but one really notable thing was that... More

Hi Teniah, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. We are disappointed to hear you weren't happy with the portion size of your meals, and with your dessert. Our tasting plate portions do depend on the number of guests tasting the dish which would account for the difference in size. This is our first feedback on the... More
