Inviting cellar door and restaurant offering certified organic wines and ciders

An inviting cellar door open on weekends, located 12 minutes from Daylesford towards Ballarat, offering lunches, certified organic and vegan wine and cider tastings, regional beers, Goldfields Farmhouse Cheeses and local produce.

Captains Creek rises on our mixed organic farm at Blampied, near Daylesford, at the foot of Kangaroo Hills. Four generations of the May family have run the 80 hectare farm for more than 100 years since 1909. The vineyard was established in 1994 by Doug and Carolyn May.

Certified organic with NASAA, the vineyard produces grapes that are grown and processed without the use of synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilisers.

From the lush Pinot Noirs to bright Chardonnays to thirst quenching Ciders, you’ll find the best selection of handcrafted organic wines come from the headwaters of Captains Creek. Our selection for tasting includes Sparkling white and red, Unoaked and Oaked Chardonnay, Rose, Pinot Noir, Verjuice, a method champenoise sparkling apple cider and two farmhouse style apple ciders.

Our inviting cellar door offers delicious lunches served between 12-3pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The seasonal menu showcases our Captains Creek farm fresh produce direct from the paddock to your plate. In these red volcanic soils our family grow a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts and graze Dorpa sheep and Black Angus cattle. We pride ourselves on sourcing the finest ingredients from other local producers in this rich food growing region.

Grab a table on the verandah overlooking the vines and countryside during our warmer months or beside the roaring open fire in winter. Try our popular Tasting Plate which is laden with a selection of local delicacies which includes Istra prosciutto, salami and hot chorizo, Captains Creek olives, marinated vegetables and house made dips served with Stella’s sourdough bread, or our delicious Captains Creek lamb and vegetable pot pie.

Bookings are highly recommended.

Guests are also able to enjoy our range of wines and ciders by the glass and regional beers plus housemade cakes and espresso coffee served throughout the day. Purchase Goldfields Farmhouse Cheeses, Istra smallgoods and other local produce.
