The Peerick Vineyard and Winery, in the heart of the rugged Australian Pyrenees, is a fusion of ancient cultures, spiritual connections, a healthy ecosystem, and an ongoing commitment to sustainability and biodiversity.
First planted in the 1990’s, the undulating slopes of the Pyrenees maximise the abundant sunlight and cool air movement from the surrounding hills. This, together with the shallow, rocky and quartz laden soils provides the ideal location to produce high quality grapes.
The name, derived from the Aboriginal word “Beeric”; a wild cat, was bestowed on this region by its traditional custodians, the Dja Dja Wurrung. Their beliefs and dreamtime stories, together with the triskele from Celtic culture, are depicted on the distinctive labels. A representation of both cultures close spiritual connection to the earth, water, sky and its creatures – in essence the vineyard’s terroir. All working in harmony to produce the distinctive range of boutique, hand picked red and white wines. Sláinte.
Peerick Vineyard and Winery is open weekends, public and school holidays 11:00am to 5:00pm or call to arrange a suitable time for you to visit. You will not be disappointed.
