About Piggs Peake Winery
Piggs Peake is a silly place.
In fundamental terms, it’s a winery.
Currently, the grapes are sourced from Moree, Mudgee, Orange, Young, McLaren Vale and the Hunter Valley.
But once the grapes arrive, that’s where the fun starts.
Piggs has a reputation for bending and twisting the rules of winemaking.
Its not uncommon when you are doing a tasting to hear others using words like Heston and Willy Wonka to describe the experience.
Steve Langham has been at the helm of the winery since the 2003 vintage and his early career as a Chemical Engineer shows itself through a range of wines far removed from the traditional varietals and styles visitors are expecting.
That’s not to say the classics don’t exist, they do.
There are superb examples of Hunter Valley Semillons and Shiraz’s made at Piggs.
But, its things like Moree Pedro Ximenez or Orange Zinfandels that take people by surprise.
Or, concoctions such as the Pig Juice or I Swine that make people stop and think.
Either way, if you are looking for classic wines, unusual varietals or something you’ve never experienced before, you should drop by for a tasting.
Cellar door can get crazy here, so its best to ring ahead on (02) 65747000 and check when a quieter time might be to give you the best experience you can have.
