About
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 making it the largest winery on the South Coast. After 22 years in business Crooked River Winery has won multiple awards including the best restaurant in the Illawarra and South Coast of NSW by the Australian Good Food Guide.

The perfect mix of Australian coastal culture & Aussie wine.
Jun 2021
I have been coming to Crooked River Winery for a number of years now and its taken me so long to write a review because I can never find the words to describe how wonderful it is being there.

It may seem over the top my comment, but when you go to a place the feels right from the minute you pull into the understated entrace & drive up a steep drive way with all the vines next to you, you just know its going to be an epic view created by genuine people who just get it.

-The house which holds the cellar door & restraunt is quite pleasent with a sort of out-back country home vibe. The whole half of the house is glass which looks over the wole property. If you can get a tale by the window, its a pretty breathtaking view to sit back & relax to.

-The staff are all very wholsome & super helpful.

-The food is great, an honest menu with a good selection of Australian classics done just right & good portions.

-The wine is lovely. For cool climate coast grown fruit, the variety of wines made are all worth trying.

I have also been lucky to go a wedding here which is one of the most enjoyable days I have ever had!

To finish it off, the Crooked River Wine Festivals are mega! For a small winery in the South Coast of Sydney, they pull togther a pretty good line up of world class Muscians. The event is ran very well with a good capped number of patrons so its not over crowded & the food truck & bars are not packed with long lines.

With hand on heart, you wont be dissapointed on dropping in or planning an awesome long lunch there.

Enjoy!

A lovely experience, beautiful ambiance
Apr 2021 • Friends
The lovely Emelia provided a tasting for my daughter and I (more for me as she was driving). Emelia was very friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed the guidance on the wines and conversation in general. The beautiful views over the surrounding vineyard and hills also added to the ambiance.

Absolutely first rate lunch on every criteria.
Apr 2021
Our lunch at Crooked River Wines today (Thursday 22 April) was very special. Celebrating our Wedding Anniversary, we had a wonderful and amazing meal, on what we understand to be just day two of the new menu. Food itself was exquisite, accompanying wines fantastic, service by Greg and Lynn absolutely first rate, and an environment at once comfortable and beautiful, on a delightfully sunny autumn day! Can't wait for our next visit! Thank you and congratulations to all concerned.

Amazing - a MUST visit location
Apr 2021
My family and I have visited Crooked River Wines plenty of times before. The friendly, staff, meals, selections of wine and views are second to none. This winery is a draw card for the region and a MUST visit location.
We attended their Winter Wine festival on the weekend. They did a fabulous job and it was a day to remember.
Looking forward to next time and keen to purchase tickets to the June event.

Winter Wine Festival at Crooked River Wines
Apr 2021 • Family
My sister in law and myself attended the Winter Wine Festival in April 2021, an event held by this beautiful winery on the south coast of NSW.
The venue itself is so picturesque and breathtaking, the hospitality is second to none and we both had a ball.
The musicians and bands that played were awesome and of course the wine was delicious!
Have never attended this event before, but will definitely be back and can highly recommend to anyone visiting.
