Greenock Creek Wines is situated at Marananga near Seppeltsfield in the rolling hills near Greenock, on the western edge of the Barossa Valley. The winery’s first release in 1988 comprised a 1986 Shiraz and a 1988 Chardonnay, sold from the tiny cellar door situated beneath the Waugh’s 150 year old stone cottage.
The winery has since expanded its plantings, and now specialises in premium red wines. Only grapes grown on the property are used, making it truly an estate winery. The range of wines includes Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro and Grenache.
In April 2016 the cellar door was relocated into the centre of the tiny township of Marananga, where it also operates 3 bed and breakfast suites located on the same site.
The wines are released each year in early September and are sold through cellar door, mail order, a limited number of retail outlets and a small quantity via export.
Greenock Creek is the home of the world famous Roennfeldt Road Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, both of which have achieved the much sought after Robert Parker 100 Points.
The winery is only open every day, except for Tuesdays, from 11 am to 5 pm.
