Custodians

Henry Malpas, Willunga's first Postmaster from 1852 to 1873, acquired the first Certificate of Title to Section 205 Malpas Road, McLaren Vale. This plot of land was destined for great things and under the custodianship of Jim and Helen Watts, the first of the Fox Creek vines were planted on it in 1984. The stone cottage, which today houses our Cellar Door, was once the home of the Malpas family and James Stanley Malpas, JSM. JSM, who went on to become a decorated army captain and who Malpas Rd is named in honour of, engraved his initials in the lintel above the door when he was 18. These initials remain there to this day, as an ongoing reminder of the history of this land that is birthplace and home of Fox Creek. These three significant Custodians and their families are at the core of our brand and will continue to be recognised through the three premium blends that bear their names our Postmaster, JSM and Jim's Script.
