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!In 2009 Fox Creek Wines celebrated an Australian first, the launch of their new Braille wine labels, an initiative they undertook with the help of the Royal Society of the Blind. The first three wines with braille and large print on their back labels were the 2009 Shadow’s run Sauvignon Blanc, 2008 Red Baron Shiraz and Vixen but this has now extended to include every Fox Creek wine. Braille tasting notes are available at the Cellar Door and large print tasting notes are available for each wine on the website.
Fox Creek produce a selection of stylish, balanced and interesting wines, with specialties in Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz based blends,Chardonnay, Vermentino and the alluring sparkling Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc named Vixen.
