Sunday Creek Vineyard

Our Sunday Creek Vineyard is 48 acres and is surrounded by majestic River Red Gums.  Running alongside the eastern perimeter of the vineyard is the mighty Murray River.  To the south lies Sunday Creek and to the west, Lake Moodemere.  These 3 bodies of water create the ideal micro-climate for this vineyard. 

 

The Sunday Creek vineyard soil type is sandy soil over river gravel.  Sandy soil or "Black Dog Fine Sandy Loam" is generally found over Murray River gravel. These soils are free draining, and produce elegant wines with lovely aromaticity. 

 

The east west oriented rows produce 18 varieties of grapes, including some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines in Australia, as well as 26 rows of Portuguese grape varieties.
