Andrew Peace Wines
A quarter of a century on from planting its first block, Andrew Peace Wines remains a proud family business and one of the largest family owned wineries in Australia. What started as a weekend escape transformed into a family passion. Through much toil of three Peace generations the 'country retreat' vineyard produced its first vintage in 1995 and a commercial winery was born.
Every vintage since has accompanied another chapter of family life - celebrations, milestones and happy memories.
Andrew Peace remains the Winemaker today and invites you to enjoy the fruits of the family toil with the same joy they have had in creating it.
Nurtured from the rich Murray River bank soil, the vineyard was established over a quarter of a century ago. From a first year grape intake of 3,000 tonne Andrew Peace Wines now crushes over 20,000 tonnes per year.
While long established, the winery is utterly contemporary driven with sound business acumen and utilising first class technology. With this combination it's no surprise that the winery is consistently among the top 20 performing Australian exporters and boasts a litany of awards to its name. Victorian Vineyard of the year 1997, Telstra Small Business of the Year 1999 and Emerging Exporter Award 2001 are just a few of its accolades. Meanwhile, the ever expanding product range consistently medals.
Despite the scale of the business today, the winery remains very much a family affair. In fact, the Peace family believes its success lies within its family ties.
