About

Crouch Ridge Vineyard is planted on gentle south facing slopes overlooking Althorne Creek and the River Crouch. The long hours of sunshine and relatively low rainfall in the area make it an ideal location for growing vines and making top quality award wining single variety still and sparkling wines.

The vineyard was planted in 2010, with classic cool climate grape varieties. Our aim is to grow vines and produce fine wines and combine it with good, local food and a lovely place to sit and relax with friends and family overlooking the local countryside, vineyard and river.

Our Crouch Ridge Estate White Wine won a National Silver Award in 2016, since then we have released white, rose and red still wine and white and Rose sparkling wine.

Crouch Ridge welcomes visitors to our beautiful vineyard, and tasting room which opened tin 2019 to customer to try our wines, or stay and relax with food and wine. Throughout the year we host a number of events, tours and tasting; dates and times are added to the website.

We also offer private tours and tastings or afternoon tea by appointment. Contact the vineyard for further details and to make a booking.
