Vale Creek Wines

Enjoy an informative and chatty wine tasting with Liz or Tony who have handcrafted a number of Italian varieties selected especially for Vale Creek Wines.

You rarely see Italians drinking a wine by itself. Italian wines are meant to be enjoyed with food. Having good friends and family to share them with only makes them taste better.

That's what prompted us in 2001, to transform our property on the outskirts of Bathurst, into a winery specialising in Italian varietals. We welcome you to our website and we invite you to visit our winery in person. It's a very special spot, nestled beside the Queen Charlotte's Vale Creek about 15 minutes south of Bathurst.

We believe that there is a real place for Italian wines at the Australian table. As recognition of Italian varietals continues to grow and the wines themselves become better appreciated we are excited to be able to offer our own wines to your table.

Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Barbera, Vermentino, Moscato...if you think the names sound wonderful, wait till you try our wines.
