Jinks Creek wineryJinks Creek Winery and Gallery

Andrew and Abi Clarke

10km up the Tonimbuk Rd from Princes Hwy at Bunyip

JINKS CREEK WINERY - is situated in a green wedge environmental zone on the edge of the Bunyip State Park in Tonimbuk and are home to kangaroos, wild deer and a myriad of bird life, reflecting the largely organic philosophy of the owners, Abi and Andrew Clarke.

Winemaker Andrew Clarke was the second recipient of a winemaking scholarship from the Victorian Wine Industry Association in 1979, and the first to bravely plant a vineyard in West Gippsland in the 1970's. After working in wineries in California and France, and learning from Australian industry icons Brown Brothers and Rick Kinzbrunner of Giaconda, Andrew decided to branch out and create his own label, originally making Jinks Creek wine from an old apple shed, which was upgraded to a new winery in 2003.

Open on Sundays for wood-fired pizzas and wine-tasting, the venue is available for private functions by arrangement, and a nearby Victorian weatherboard cottage provides secluded accommodation above the vineyard.

Hours: 12 - 5pm for lunch on Sundays.
