Established in 1984 and owned by the Watts family, Fox Creek has developed a reputation as one of the finest wineries from McLaren Vale.
With a Langton’s Classification, 5 stars from James Halliday and international award tally of 12 trophies and over 120 gold medals in the last 5 vintages alone, the 32Ha Fox Creek property comprises a rich diversity of grape varieties as well as a 1,200 tonne, state of the art winery and purpose built barrel hall comprising over 1800 French and American oak barrels.
Join Senior Winemaker Scott Zrna at Artisan Tasting Lounge, who has 23 years of qualified experience in the wine industry with over a decade at Fox Creek, as he introduces the new ‘Custodians’ range, and the newest vintage of the highly awarded Short Row Shiraz.
