Your Gateway to Hunter Valley Wines, Wineries, and Vineyards
First Creek is well-known in the oldest wine producing region of New South Wales, the Hunter Valley. It is one of the few active wineries in the Hunter Valley that offer regular facilities tour daily. For the uninitiated, a winery is a business that creates wines, and by create means it has a facility to ferment wine, which may or may not come from its own vineyard. On the other hand, a vineyard is a business that raises grapes. It may or may not ferment wine of its own, in which case a vineyard can bring its grapes to a winery for processing to wines.

Wines are aged in oak barrels mostly imported from France or the UK.


First Creek is trusted by at least 25 wine companies to process their wines, and that speaks for its reputation. It has its own brand of wines too, and a visit to the wine region of the Hunter is not complete without a real winery tour.

It is a family owned business and everyone is just warm and friendly, the experience was like visiting a neighbour. There is a nominal fee for the tour, but if you are buying wine anyway, this fee is waived. Trust me, after you have been through the wine-tasting part, you will certainly end up buying a bottle or two at least.
