Captains Creek Winery meanders past the original homestead of Captain Hepburn. Four generations of the May family have run the 80 hectare farm for more than 100 years. Its red volcanic soils have been cultivated for many uses including mixed cereals, hay, beef cattle and dairy cows. The transition to organic farming began in the 1980s, grapes were planted in 1994 and the following year Captains Creek became one of the firsts certified “organic” farms in Australia followed by cellar door operations in 2005. The winery and eatery is now a delightful venue in a glorious setting for functions, weddings, events and conferences.
