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 a genuine passion for all that is wine, it was inevitable the two would meet with an aim to produce the best possible wine.
Concentrating 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.
The wines include McLaren Vale Shiraz and Grenache planted as far back as the early 1900s to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris grown in the picturesque Piccadilly Valley. We have a genuine focus upon small parcels of high quality fruit that reflect the variety, vintage and the unique terroir each has to offer.
We strive to produce wines that reflect their true regional characteristics.
At Bent Creek, we are blessed in that we love what we do and attempt to ensure this is communicated through every drop of wine we produce. Our line up creates an impressive portfolio of high quality affordable wine.
Our Cellar Door on Blewitt Springs Road, McLaren Flat situated in McLaren Vale gives our customers a quaint place to meet and taste our wines.
We believe that wine should be a part of everyday life. With this our philosophy is simple – “Good wines are like good friends, treat them well and they remain friends forever” .
As we truly believe wine is a very personal and sensual experience we hope to remain “Good Friends Forever”..
