Finally there is a way. If you've felt left out by the grape wine industry or just want to let your tastebuds experience new things, Firescreek Fruit Wines is remarkable in that it takes traditional time tested winemaking and combines it with the sensational tastes and flavours of fresh and lively fruits, flowers and herbs to give you the special experience you have been searching for.
Fruit wine is the new and exciting and delightful adventure in wine enjoyment.
For Peter and Ellie fruit winemaking started many years ago with a desire to preserve the rich harvest flavours of ripe citrus, figs and apricots from their own organic orchard. To capture the mouth-watering freshness of ripe fruits in warm summer days to enjoy long into the cold winter months.
Fruit wine is all about uniqueness and capturing the exciting array of flavours and fragrances of fruits, flowers and herbs.
We take the ripe fruit, crush it just as you do with the grape, add yeast and wait and wait and wait and voila! A fruit wine! Oh it really is a little more complicated than that but fruit wine is made in a very similar way to a traditional grape wine. A lot of patience, courage and dedication.
The winery at Holgate on the NSW Central Coast has been established in a beautiful rustic outbuilding set on 2 ½ gorgeous acres. The "tin shed" epitomised the blending of old techniques with new ideas. It's kooky, yet traditional making wine with fruits, flowers and herbs. Mango, plum, Berry, Passionfruit, Rose and Elderberry, Fruits of the Australia Rainforest and the uniqueness of chilli in wine.
The cellar door is open for wine tasting 5 days a week and is set amongst the gardens and ponds where ducks paddle. The bird life is abundant along Fires Creek from which the winery takes its name. The Lillipilli and Eucalypt, Bangalow and Cabbage Tree palm grow thickly along the banks. Each time of the year is special at Firescreek and always there is a sight or sound to delight the senses. From the rich greenness of summer to the orange and russet hues of autumn. Winter sees the snug fire in the winery and the orderly trimming of the tiny vineyard (for yes we grow grapes too). Come and visit us!
