Established in 1999, today Bent Creek Vineyards is a joint partnership between Sam Rugari and David Garrick with collectively over 40 years experience in the wine industry. With genuine passion for all that is wine, it was inevitable the two would meet with an aim to make the best possible wine from prized growing regions throughout Australia. Our winemaking style, we concentrate our efforts on sourcing premium fruit from the best vineyards in McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills, working closely with our dedicated growers to achieve the full potential of each individual site.
James Halliday’s best selling and definitive guide to Australia – the “Halliday Wine Companion” – awarded Bent Creek Vineyards “Top Ten Best New Wineries 2016”. Our passion for making the best possible wine also earned us our 5 star rating in the 2016 Edition.
