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.
