Cré wines consists of JonJo McEvoy, Oliver Johns, and Angus Hean. Our focus is on the Yarra Valley, sourcing fruit mainly from the Dixons Creek Valley that runs from the Great Dividing Range down to Highbow Hill. We also source fruit from vineyards in the upper Yarra and the Christmas hills for their unique climates and soils.
