Merricks Creek is a family run business that has been making minute parcels of high quality wine for nearly two decades. These wines can now be enjoyed at our vineyard, accompanied by a selection of creatively inspired share plates and experienced amongst the vines. Surrounded by trees, the property offers a tranquil escape and enchanting views, leaving civilisation to become only a distant memory.
Winemaking at Merricks Creek began in 2001 when a contract to sell our pinot noir crop suddenly collapsed. Until then we had considered ourselves grape growers only. We have continued making pinot noir every year since that fateful 2001 vintage and in 2015 we produced our first chardonnay. This is a hobby “gone mad” but we, and our now grown up children, simply love the place and everything that comes with it.
