Captains Creek

The Cellar Door & Café is open from 11am-5pm on Saturdays & Sundays. 

Captains Creek Organic Wines is located on Kangaroo Hills Rd in Blampied, VIC (between Ballarat and Daylesford). If you are arriving via the Midland Highway, turn off at the Swiss Mountain Hotel and then follow the posted signs.

Captains Creek rises on our farm at Blampied, at the foot of the Kangaroo Hills, and meanders north past the original homestead of Captain Hepburn. Four generations of the May family have run the 80 hectare farm for more than 100 years after my great grandfather, Joseph May, purchased it in 1909.

With increasing visitor numbers—and growing local interest for food—we opened a small kitchen in 2009 to provide simple lunches showcasing fresh, organic produce from our farm and other local producers, including Goldfields Farmhouse cheese. We started offering wood-fired pizzas on Friday evening in the warmer months of 2011. Captains Creek Tasting Plate is a popular dish, comprising a selection of local delicacies including Tuki smoked sausage, Istra prosciutto and salami, Captains Creek olives, marinated vegetables, house-made dips and Stella sourdough breads.
