Attraction details
Owner description: Fox Creek Wines began when a group of medicos decided to realise a lifelong passion - creating wine from bare earth and sunshine. The earth was found at McLaren Vale, one of South Australia's premier wine regions on the Fleurieu Peninsula. The sunshine was free.Jim and Helen Watts purchased the 32 hectare Vineyard property in 1984 and were advised against planting vines in the heavy clay soil. Undeterred by the sceptics they planted and nurtured fine quality cuttings. Their labours bore quality fruit which they lovingly converted into supreme quality wines. Success followed and blends and single varietal wines are produced from Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourverdre, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho vines. Their Reserve Shiraz received an Excellent Classification in Langton’s 5th Classification of Australian Wine.The nineteenth century stone Cellar Door Cottage is surrounded by beautiful tranquil grounds where visitors often picnic. The Cellar Door is open for tastings daily, 10am and 5pm. Winery tours are available at 10:20am on Mondays and Fridays; bookings essential.

We have been to Fox Creek several times now and each has been a treat. Fantastic wines, beautiful gardens, and wonderful staff make for a complete wine tasting experience.

We visited a few years ago and loved this place. Recently returned and am stoked to learn their wines are all vegan and they also have the best vegan cheese platters! My favourite winery in Adelaide.

A very enthusiastic Tina made this one of th mosr enjoyable wine tasting experiences we have had in a long time. Their reds are all very easy drinking and great value for money. The cheese platter we had for lunch was very good and a great way to finish the day with one of their very nice reds.

We arrived just before lunchtime and were warmly welcomed by the wonderful Bun who then showed us to a table and arranged for a delicious food platter for the four of us, catering for the vegetarian amongst us too. We tasted some delicious wines and also had the pleasure of talking to Helen , the owner of the winery, who joined us at our table for a while. There is a sign advertising a $10 fee for tasting but this is deducted from the cost of any wine purchased and seems a very reasonable charge for the ambience and welcome, even if no wine is purchased. Will not hesitate to visit again. The wines were exceptional and we have joined their club. Thanks again to one and all. Josella McDougall

Our first time visiting Fox Creek and we were really impressed with the cute cellar door and really friendly staff. Wines were really good and although we didn’t have one this time the cheese platters looked excellent. We will be back with friends to have a drink and a nibble on one of the outside tables dotted around the vineyard, just beautiful.
