Jim and Helen Watts began the Fox Creek story in 1984 when they purchased a 32 hectare farming property in McLaren Vale and went about planting vines. The vines thrived, bearing exceptionally high quality and sought after fruit. Ten years later, the family retained a parcel of fruit from the 1994 vintage, which they lovingly crafted into quality wine so supreme that it was awarded ‘Best Wine’ at the 1995 McLaren Vale wine show. The transition from growers to winemakers began and with that Fox Creek Wines was born!
We invite you to visit our Cellar Door, conveniently located 45 kilometres south of Adelaide, between the villages of McLaren Vale and Willunga on the Fleurieu Peninsula to experience a complete tasting of our award winning wines.
Fox Creek’s Cellar Door cottage emulates the history of the region, maintaining its original nineteenth century stone exterior and many other original features. Surrounded by gum trees, picturesque gardens and wildlife, it is the perfect spot for relaxing with a glass of wine. We also have a free children’s treasure hunt and offer free tours of our on-site, state of the art winery on Monday and Friday mornings from 10.30am.
