We have owned Halifax Vineyard for 16 years. We purchased the young vineyard with the sole intention of developing the vineyard to grow the highest quality grapes and make a single vineyard super premium shiraz.
We sell some of our grapes to Penfolds, Australia’s most respected wine maker, and in 2015 we were included in St. Henri.
Peter studied at Roseworthy and has worked with wine and vineyards for over 25 years. He left the “mainstream” wine industry to develop Halifax Vineyard and to ultimately grow high end fruit for Penfolds, and make small quantities of wine for his own label HALiFAX.
While he continues to be greatly influenced by vignerons in some of France’s greatest wine regions which Peter and Lizzie visit regularly, he has embraced the opportunity to be a Penfolds’ Ambassador since 2013.
Elizabeth has brought a very successful working life in international marketing communications and advertising and more recently, a tenure as CEO of McLaren Grape Wine and Tourism, to her role as MD at HALiFAX.
This, together with her lifetime of travelling the world and experiencing the great wines and wine regions of the world, adds immeasurably to people’s experience with and understanding of HALiFAX.
