Fox Creek Wines, McLaren Vale

#2 of 32 in Wineries in McLaren Vale
It all began when a group of medicos decided to realise a lifelong passion - creating a wine from bare earth and sunshine. The earth was found at McLaren Vale, one of South Australia's premier wine regions, renowned worldwide for its Shiraz and other red wines. The sunshine was free.

Between them and their families Fox Creek Wines was born and they could not have imagined what a success their venture would be!

  • Great cheese platter with some excellent glasses of wine with very friendly service in a great setting. What’s not to love? Highly recommended
  • Great spot! The wines are really nice too. I particularly liked the sparkling red and Cabernet. Whilst I didn’t indulge in food during my visit, it’s a perfect spot to share a cheese platter and bottle of wine. You have to pay to taste, but it’s refunded when you buy wine (which is almost inevitable once you’ve tasted a few).
  • Looked lovely if you are wanting picturesque and the cheese platters looked nice, for us it was a bit busy and rushed. The sparkling red was nice but nothing really stood out. $5 tasting fee which is waive with purchase, seems standard at the bigger wineries in the area and very reasonable. We prefer small boutique and wine with stories so for us this was just ok. We weren't really given any info on the wines we were tasting. Definitely looked lovely for different purpose though!
  • Amazing cheese platter and beautiful wine! (Try the sparkling Shiraz) perfect on a hot summers day. The staff here are so welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks for the recommendation Rosalind
  • For my 40th birthday, I rented a limo to take a few friends to McLaren Vale to sample some wines. The first stop of the day was Fox Creek Wines. The platters I organized ahead of time were BEAUTIFUL and so delicious. My friends were completely impressed. I loved that we had our own little area in the verandah overlooking the garden and it was beautifully set up for us. And, don't even get me started on the wines! They were fantastic (which I already knew)! The lovely lady that lead our wine tasting was knowledgeable, friendly and kept us in our allotted time frame. It was perfectly timed. It felt relaxed yet we got to try a good selection of your wines. A lot of my guests were saying that they would definitely purchase the wines after tasting them. I know I will be! Thank you for making our first stop of the day a very memorable one!
