We have owned Halifax Vineyard for 18 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 also sell some of our grapes to Penfolds.
Peter studied winemaking, vitliculture & wine marketing at Roseworthy (Adelaide University) and has worked with wine and vineyards for over 30 years.
He left the “mainstream” wine industry in the early 2000s to develop Halifax Vineyard and to make small quantities of wine for Lizzie & Peter’s own label, HALiFAX.
While having worked with some of Australia’s most revered winemakers Peter continues to be greatly influenced by vignerons (many of whom are now friends) in France’s Rhône Valley & Burgundy.
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.
