Willow Creek Location and History
Willow Creek Vineyard is located on Victoria’s breathtaking Mornington Peninsula. The property was first settled by cattle farmer, James McCormick in 1876. It was acquired in 1988 by the Ball, Knowles and Harris families. The vines that are planted on the property are amongst the oldest on the peninsula.
