Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Peter Drayton is a 5th generation descendant of the famed Drayton family wines from Australia’s Hunter Valley.

An easy 2 hr drive north of Sydney you’ll be impressed with the energised history of Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley. Peter Drayton’s IronBark Hill vineyard is set at the foot of the Brokenback range, the 40 hectare property  has 18 hectares under vine.

Peter has a unique story, fiercely determined and independent often referred to as the Black Sheep. Peter’s range reflects his love and respect for the tradition that is the Hunter Valley and the future and optimism that is also the Hunter Valley.

With a bustling construction company and a deep seeded passion for his wine business, Peter has successfully combined the two to create an impressive outfit and must visit location which includes | cellar door | working winery | custom built brewhouse | restaurant | wedding chapel | catered function centre | accommodation

The vineyard produces wine from the grape varieties for which the Hunter is famous, including Shiraz, Semillon and Chardonnay. It also has extensive plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Verdelho and the CSIRO hybrid grape Tyrian. An exciting range of ‘alternate’ varieties are now available given these Mediterranean styles are extremely suitable and receptive to the Hunter’s climate. To compliment it all, an impressive sparkling wine range and selection of Liqueur Fortified wines are available.
