Fox Creek Wines, McLaren Vale

Winery / Vineyard · Food & Drink
Fox Creek Wines is a family owned winery conveniently located 45 kilometers south of Adelaide, between the villages of McLaren Vale and Willunga on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Visitors are always welcome at our cosy nineteenth century stone Cellar Door cottage where they can taste the award winning wines whilst enjoying one of the bi-monthly art exhibitions or a relaxing picnic in the beautiful gardens amongst ancient eucalypt and olive trees. Complimentary 'behind the scenes' winery tours are held at 10.20am on Monday or Friday.

In 2009 Fox Creek Wines celebrated an Australian first, the launch of their new Braille wine labels, an initiative they undertook with the help of the Royal Society of the Blind. The first three wines with braille and large print on their back labels were the 2009 Shadow’s run Sauvignon Blanc, 2008 Red Baron Shiraz and Vixen but this has now extended to include every Fox Creek wine. Braille tasting notes are available at the Cellar Door and large print tasting notes are available for each wine on the website.

Cellar Door is open 10am and 5pm seven days a week (except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day).

  • Lovely setting, great Sparklimg red. We weren’t too fussed with the rest of the wines. We haven’t eaten here so can’t comment on food.
  • Well done Fox Creek you made us so very welcome! Last minute Christmas group function and nothing was any trouble. You went out of your way to make our event a great success. Thank you from all of us Wynot
