Peter Thompson has been involved in Viticulture since 1971, actively involved in the establishment and maintenance of Vineyards from Margaret River W.A to King Valley VIC and everywhere in between.
Peter purchased his first vineyard in the Riverland (1973), Barossa Valley (1975), High Eden (1988), Coonawarra (2006) and Kongorong (2017). Settling at Coonawarra with the first purchase of the "Home Block" has been followed by 3 other vineyards, "Grandmas", "Chapel" and "Julia Hill". Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot was first made in 2010.
In a bid to produce high quality wines, Peter discovered the hidden treasure that is the vineyards planted at Kongorong (Mount Gambier GI) and in 2018 Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Rose was made. The vineyard weathers one of the coldest mainland climates but then has the loving sea breezes during summer. The vines survive being planted in hard bank of flint(Silex) rock.
