    Day 1

    Eastern Peake

    Eastern Peake winemaker Owen Latta has been described by Different Drop's Wade Doolan as "the Ballarat boy taking Australian wine by storm".

    Wade says “Owen is setting the Australian wine industry on fire with a two-pronged attack. First, a classic range of premium pinot noirs, chardonnays and syrahs under family Eastern Peake label. And second, his wilder stylings pushing the boundaries of the Australian winemaking avant-garde under Latta Vino”.
