Fox Creek Wines, McLaren Vale

#2 of 35 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!

  • Enjoyed a lovely cheese platter with great wine, after a tough week. The owner/host was very obliging and friendly. Would definitely recommend stopping by during a trip through the McLaren Vale region...  more »
  • We needed lunch so got the platter. There was plenty though it would have been nice to taste more than 2 cheeses, less of more. Tasted 3 wines to choose one for lunch, the wine was fine but I wouldn't...  more »

  • Loved our time here! Rosalind was lovely and the wines were top notch. A beautiful lookout onto the gardens, and fun tunes. Highly recommend!
  • 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.
  • 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 👌 🍷
  • Great place for a nice lunch. Great staff and good service. Had a great time.
  • 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).
