Armstead Estate

Victoria | Heathcote

James' Review

Peter Armstead had been a lifelong wine collector and consumer when he was caught up in the Ansett collapse (he had been an aircraft engineer and technical instructor). While he and partner Sharon Egan have full-time day jobs, they were able to purchase a property on the shores of Lake Eppalock. They were determined to have a small vineyard, and proceeded to plant shiraz, marsanne and cabernet sauvignon. Peter has learned as much as possible about viticulture and winemaking, buying grapes from well-known vineyards in the region.
