Our Story

Two Figs Winery was established in 2003 by Shayne Bricker and his wife, Alison. Our winery can be found on the corner of Back Forest Road, 12 km from Berry, in the New South Wales wine region of the Shoalhaven Coast.

Two Figs Winery earned its name from two Moreton Bay Fig trees found on the property’s original driveway.

We are a small boutique winery producing around 5000 cases of premium, hand-crafted wines yearly. Over the last two decades, our wines have been carefully crafted to meet the changing pallets of customers whilst staying innovative and curious. This combination has allowed us to produce outstanding, accoladed wines.

We use fruit sourced onsite (including our Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon vines) and from nearby wine-growing areas, including Hilltops near Goulburn, New South Wales.

Our passion for wine-making and sustainability allows us to produce soft, approachable wine that consistently performs at NSW Small Winemakers and South Coast Wine Show.

Whether our easy-drinking Sunday Afternoon white blend or our premium Barrel Select reds, our winemaker, Simon, takes full advantage of our temperate, maritime climate, enabling our grapes to grow with superb natural acidity.

With a beautifully renovated cellar door experience, the Two Figs Winery is excited about sharing our wines and their stories with you in an intimate and seated wine tasting experience.

We warmly welcome you to visit the winery to sample our award-winning wines, enjoy a local produce plate and take in our breathtaking views.

 

Shoalhaven Coast Wine Region

The Shoalhaven Coast wine-growing region stretches from Kiama in the North to Milton in the South and west to Kangaroo Valley on the South Coast NSW.

The Shoalhaven Coast wine trail meanders through luscious green valleys and overlooks some of the country’s most pristine beaches. It is one of the few regions in Australia where visitors have the unique experience of meeting vignerons and winemakers at cellar doors.
