The Story

Only select fruit from our unique vineyard is used to produce Captains Creek Organic wines. Our grapes are hand picked by our supportive family and friends in late April/early May. Our wines are quite literally, hand made, using small open fermenters for the Pinot Noir while the Chardonnay is barrel fermented.

Pinot Noir
The Pinot Noir undergoes 2-4 days prefermentation maceration before fermentation on skins with regular hand plunging.

The Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in 50% new Seguin Moreau French oak barriques with 11 months on gross yeast lees.

Both wines undergo malo-lactic fermentation and 11 months maturation in 50% new Seguin Moreau French oak barriques. These old fashioned traditional wine making techniques add complexity and depth resulting in full bodied well balanced wines with classy but subtle oak characters. These wholesome wines display classic cool climate features and gain their individuality from the vineyard environment.
