Rob and Kay Howell, owners of Jeir Creek said: “When we established the vineyard and decided to create a life around our passion for wine and winemaking, we didn’t realise how it would totally dominate our lives. We are fortunate to have raised our three daughters here and to share our experiences with so many people through our cellar door.” Jeir Creek produces a range of wines made from grapes grown in the vineyard including Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Merlot, Shiraz Viognier and Botrytis Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. Offering a complete winery experience, Rob and Kay take pleasure in sharing their passion with visitors to their cellar door. Rob said: “I always wanted to make wine and became fascinated with the technical side of things. This is probably why our winery is one of the most technically advanced in the Canberra District with state of the art facilities.” Kay said: “I love people and take pride in remembering customers when they come back to visit. I take pleasure when people bring visiting friends and relatives to the cellar door, and enjoy sharing our experiences with them.” Jeir Creek offer a total winery experience with special tours of the vineyard as well as barrel tastings and exploring the production facilities. During the year opportunities for joining in the harvest and pruning season will be available as well as educational tours and the chance to participate in the picking of the Pinot. For their 25th Anniversary a special offering of their first Sparkling White (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) and their first estate grown Viognier, released later this year.
