Award Winning Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris is a noble grape and for Petane, it's king. A prodigious gold medal and trophy collector, every vintage we strive for a flavour intense, lush and generous wine style.
Selectively hand-picked, phenologically ripe berries are gently whole bunch pressed and, post ferment, the wine is left on its yeast lees for 8 months to evolve. A further four months of bottle maturation, prior to release, allows the wine to rest and achieve its full potential.
Phil and Sarah
Phil met Sarah when she designed his first wine label. Finding design fees way too expensive he decided to marry her.
chief grape sampler
The nets are no match for Jimmy and as vintage approaches he works hard to sample as many grapes as he can on a daily basis.
The newest member of team Petane, Ella is a way off earning her keep but her smiles keep us going through the tough times.
