Captains Creek Winery
Captains Creek Farm is also home to Captains Creek Winery which is run by Doug and Carolyn May.
Building the “cellar door” commenced in 2005, starting with the restoration of a 100-year-old workers’ hut, then adding a tasting room built with cypress milled on the farm. It features the original fireplace and shingle roof, and displays old wares and photographs from early farming days. It was opened to the public in 2006 with offerings of wine and local cheeses.
With increasing visitor numbers—and growing local interest for food—Doug and Carolyn opened a small kitchen in 2009 to provide simple lunches showcasing fresh, organic produce from the farm and other local producers, including Goldfields Farmhouse cheese. They started offering wood-fired pizzas on Friday evening in the warmer months of 2011. Captains Creek Tasting Plate is a popular dish, comprising a selection of local delicacies including Tuki smoked sausage, Istra prosciutto and salami, Captains Creek olives, marinated vegetables, house-made dips and Stella sourdough breads.
The venue is also used for conferences, birthdays, Christmas parties, weddings and other functions—and continues to evolve. Since our first vintage in 1998, the beverage list has grown to include sparkling and still, red and white wines, ciders from apples grown on the farm, local handcrafted beers and soft drinks, coffee and tea.
