Crooked River Wines was established in 1998 and is a proud family owned and operated winery. It is situated on the beautiful south coast of New South Wales, Gerringong.

Our vineyard was established in 1998 in the rich volcanic alluvial soil of Gerringong, – a valley between the mountains and the sea.

The commercial winery was completed in 2001 and now consists of 280,000 litres of stainless steel fermentation and storage tanks and 70,000 litres of oak barrels. After 16 years of business Crooked River Winery has won multiple awards and is now the largest vineyard on the South Coast.

Crooked River produces premium quality red and white wines.

OUR VINES = Natural methods. Hand beaten grapes. Premium French & American oak barrels

As we arrived we took in the beautiful views of the valley / ocean all around the vineyard. On our entry to the Cellar Door we were asked abruptly if we had a booking to do a wine tasting. While we didn't have a booking for a tasting, we had made a booking for the restaurant weeks prior. We were... More

We came here for a wedding this week and the location and wines were perfection, but portion sizes of the meals weren't big enough, and according to the bride and groom at the tasting they were at least twice the size. Dessert was not good. Like any wedding there were a couple hiccups but one really notable thing was that... More

Hi Teniah, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. We are disappointed to hear you weren't happy with the portion size of your meals, and with your dessert. Our tasting plate portions do depend on the number of guests tasting the dish which would account for the difference in size. This is our first feedback on the... More

I was remarkably impressed by the professionalism of the staff member who guided us through a highly enjoyable wine tasting experience last Tuesday, and by the superb quality of the wines. Every glass was exquisite - many were fruity, soft, with a very smooth finish. It was impossible to leave without the chambourcin. The grapes are grown locally on the... More

We were in the Gerringong area in late March and dropped in on the Crooked River Winery. We tasted their wines on offer and were delighted with the Shiraz we tasted and so bought a case. The great news was they were having a 1/2 price offer on certain wines and the one we'd selected was part of that offer.... More

Had a beautiful afternoon/evening at Crooked River Winery. We arrived unfortunately after the cellar door had closed, but still managed to have a wine & enjoy the view.

They tried to compensate for mistakes made (like telling us the wrong special but trying to serve it to us anyway, and an extended wait that made us feel forgotten about) but the damage was already done. It made what was supposed to be a special family occasion into a really average time. Still, the view was lovely.
