The Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s prime winemaking regions and boasts numerous vineyards that produce some of the world’s best-loved wines. One of the newest editions to the Valley’s family is the Wynwood Estate. This new project has snapped up one of the oldest vineyards in the region and is dedicated to creating wines that imbue both the fascinating history of the Hunter Valley and the traditional winemaking ways.
Set in a stunning location, the on-site cellar door provides visitors with the chance to sample some delicious flavours as well as enjoy the spectacular views across the Valley and beyond.
Wynwood Estate’s Chief Winemaker
Chief winemaker Peter Lane boasts more than 20 years’ experience in the Hunter Valley wine industry and has worked alongside some of the top people in the Valley over the years.
Lane decided at a young age that he wanted to go into winemaking after growing up with a keen interest in science, viticulture, and agriculture. He then went on to land his first job in the industry at Mount Pleasure as a trainee chemist, which is where he developed his love for Hunter Shiraz and Semillon. Afterwards, it was onto Southcorp where he worked at Tulloch Wines for the best part of the 1990s. Here, he learned a different side to winemaking before he was taken on by Tyrrells as an assistant winemaker.
Lane’s extensive experience and love of winemaking means he has the knowledge, skill, and passion to create some of the Valley’s best wines at the Wynwood Estate.
