Pikes is a family owned winery, established in 1984 by Neil and Andrew Pike. Over the years the business has grown somewhat, but Pikes still has plenty of charm and character.
The Pikes label was founded on great Riesling which was again confirmed when the renowned Pikes 'Traditionale' Riesling was awarded the Best Australian Riesling at the 2013 Canberra International Riesling Challenge. However, Pikes also offers a wide range of wine styles to suit all tastes.
Our cellar door and winery is located amongst the vineyards on our property at Polish Hill River. The restored stone building, originally a shearing shed, was built by Polish immigrants in the 1800's. Adjacent to the cellar door is a beautifully landscaped area for visitors to sit, relax and enjoy a delicious picnic grazing plate and a glass of wine or a Pikes Beer. The grounds are also available to host weddings, wedding photos and other celebrations.
Along with the tasting room we have the Gallery @ Pikes that showcases high quality art works from a variety of artists, the exhibitions changing every two months.
A micro-brewery is planned for the site to be opened in December 2014.
