The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Until 1990 the Bream Creek fruit was sold to Moorilla Estate, but since then the winery has been independently owned and managed by Fred Peacock, legendary for the care he bestows on the vines under his direction. Fred's skills have seen an increase in production and outstanding wine quality across the range, headed by the Pinot Noir. The list of trophies and gold, silver and bronze medals won is extensive. Fred's expertise as a consultant is in constant demand. Exports to China.

Bream Creek Vineyard is one of the first commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania. Originally planted in 1973, the vineyard was purchased in 1990 by Fred Peacock, who increased Pinot Noir and Chardonnay plantings and introduced Sauvignon Blanc. Fred also planted the first commercial block of Schönburger in the Southern Hemisphere at Bream Creek. Bream Creek Vineyard produces premium cool climate Tasmanian wines that are renowned as both complex and elegant. Since 1990, Bream Creek wines have garnered 20 trophies and over 470 show medals and have an enviable reputation for consistency and reliability.
