Create an itinerary including Fox Creek Wines
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).

  • The garden was lush and pretty, and the atmosphere very welcoming. Thank you for such a great afternoon! We had a wine tasting for 18 in the garden and the servers were charming and knowledgeable. Wines were delicious too.
  • Great winery and cellar door. One of my favorite family friendly places. The platters and hot food are very good,and the staff are so friendly and abiding. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
