James' Review

In the 1860s, well respected West Indian shoemaker ?Black' Brookes occupied a cottage at the bridge over Cataract Creek. After he passed away in the late 1880s the creek was renamed Snobs Creek, ?snob' being an old English term for cobbler (shoe repairer), and the last that shapes the toe end of the shoe. The vineyard is situated where Snobs Creek joins the Goulburn River, 5km below the Lake Eildon wall. The varieties grown are shiraz (2.5ha), sauvignon blanc (1.5ha) and chardonnay (1ha); all manage to produce no more than 7.4 tonnes per hectare. Is described as a ?cool climate vineyard in a landscaped environment'.

About this winery

Established in 1996. Snobs Creek Estate Vineyard is located on the banks of the Goulburn River Approximately 5 kms downstream from the Eildon township in North East Victoria.

At the bridge of Snobs Creek in 1860 a shoemaker lived. He was a West Indian man known as ‘Black’ Brookes He sold his shoes in the local town of Alexandra and repaired the community essential foot wear. In the late 1880’s he passed away leaving a legacy behind him. The creek was to be forever named after his most important tool. The Snob or anvil used to shape the toe end of the boot.
