Petersons Wines have been producing quality wines for wine lovers since 1981. Not much has changed since then - except they now produce a larger range of award winning wines.
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 they included other grape varieties: Chardonnay; Viognier; Verdelho, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Back Block Shiraz which is their most famous Hunter Valley wine.
The Hunter Valley is where their only Winemaking facility is located. Chief Winemaker, Gary Reed, has been with them since their first Vintage in 1981. Assistant Winemaker, Michael Hudson calls brother to Jamie - their Vineyard Manager in Mudgee. Jamie has been working with them for almost 25 years.
