Food & Drink
Captains Creek rises on a mixed organic farm at Blampied, near Daylesford, at the foot of Kangaroo Hills. Four generations of the May family have run the 80 hectare farm for more than 100 years since 1909.
From the lush pinot noirs to bright chardonnays to thirst quenching ciders, you will find the best selection of handcrafted organic wines. These include sparkling white and red, unoaked and oaked chardonnay, pinot grigio, rose, pinot noir, tempranillo, lagrein and verjuice – a method champenoise sparkling apple cider and two farmhouse style apple ciders.
Captain Creek’s inviting cellar door offers delicious lunches served on Saturday and Sunday. The seasonal menu showcases Captains Creek’s farm fresh produce direct from the paddock to your plate. In these red volcanic soils, a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, free range chickens, dorpa sheep and black angus cattle grow.
Grab a table on the verandah overlooking the vines and countryside during the warmer months or beside the roaring open fire in winter. Try the popular tasting plate which is laden with a selection of local delicacies including Istra prosciutto, salami and hot chorizo, Captains Creek olives, marinated vegetables and house made dips served with Stella’s sourdough bread.
