Petersons Wines have been producing quality wines for wine lovers since 1981. Not much has changed since then - except we now produce a larger range of award winning wines. We would love for you to join us at any of our picturesque backdrops to laugh, relax, unwind, imbibe. Petersons Wines is proudly family owned and operated since 1981. The original planting of ten acres of Semillon was planted at Mount View in 1971 with the intention of supplying the nearby McWilliams Mount Pleasant Winery with grapes. Over the next few years this was expanded to forty acres and we included other grape varieties: Chardonnay; Viognier; Verdelho, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Back Block Shiraz which is our most famous Hunter Valley wine. The Hunter Valley is where our only Winemaking facility is located. Chief Winemaker, Gary Reed has been with us since our first Vintage in 1981. Assistant Winemaker, Michael Hudson calls brother to Jamie - our Vineyard Manager in Mudgee. Jamie has been working with us for almost 25 years. Petersons Wines Armidale is located in the South East of Armidale in New England. The vineyard is located on a rich, red brown basalt hill facing to the north east, and is planted with Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Our first harvest was in 2002. As Armidale is a cool climate area, we expect very high fruit quality for many years, weather permitting. After a lot of research into climatic conditions, we do anticipate some problems with vineyard management, but have established a specially designed trellis to avoid frost damage. This should enable us to maximise fruit ripening through increased sunlight exposure within the canopy. In addition, overhead sprinklers offer a back-up in case of severe frosts. With the beautiful 1911 built Guesthouse in Armidale, you wont need much more convincing to come and join us for a drink. Read less
