Wine Maker- Peter Lane

With over 20 years experience in the wine industry in the Hunter Valley Peter Lane has worked with some of the leading winemakers in the Hunter including Lindeman’s, Tyrrell’s and McWilliams.

Born and raised in the lower Hunter Valley encouraged an interests in science, viticulture and agriculture. After deciding at a young age he wanted to become a winemaker, he went on to a Bachelor Applied Science (Agriculture), Bachelor Applied Science (Wine Science) and later on a Grad Certificate in Business Administration.

His first full time job in the wine industry was as a trainee chemist for Mount Pleasure where he spent 6 years, working with many dedicated people and developed a passion for Hunter Shiraz and Semillon.

He then moved on to Southcorp where he was based at Tulloch wines in the early 1990’s, here Peter seen a different side to winemaking and the styles being made. In 2003 Peter was approached by Tyrrells to join them as an Assistant winemaker, once again returning to a family owned vineyard winery steeped in tradition.

The opportunity to work with great old vineyards and other regions adds an excitement and a challenge to the his position as Winemaker at Capercaillie (Wynwood).

 When Pete is not busy making beautiful Hunter Valley wines he enjoys watching cricket and kicking back with a beer.
