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
  • Loved our time here! Rosalind was lovely and the wines were top notch. A beautiful lookout onto the gardens, and fun tunes. Highly recommend!
  • What a beautiful afternoon. Kid friendly and relaxed. We wandered in around 12:30 on a Saturday and were greeted and sat outside on a peach of a day. Amelia hosted us and took us through the list of Reds. We had the kids and Amelia set them off on a Treasure hunt which they loved. (Free prize at the end) Wines were gorgeous and we were happy to purchase 3 bottles to take home. Considered there club but decided not to. Bring a ball or two as there was plenty of room for kids to play around. Probably something Fox Creek could consider- a box of balls and lawn games?? I love the set up- pay $10 and get sat down in your own space and leisurely go through the wines. $10 is refunded if you purchase. Perfect 👌 🍷
  • Was too small. Heaters outside didn't work and it was very cold. I mean cmon its winter and your heaters are left not working or as we got told "Not good enough to put on"?. Only one toilet which means there is always a line to wait. Took ages for the wine to come out and there wasn't any information on the bottles. Staff would only say the name of the wine. What about the age and anything else you want to know when doing some wine tasting? Staff where rude and told spoke to us rudely. Won't be back. Glad we got kicked out because the experience wasn't good.
