Forty million years ago, with the forces of water and tectonic plate movement, Australia’s Murray River system was born. The third longest navigable river in the world. These events caused the inland flow of rich fertile sediment and soil layers. Now commonly referred to as the ‘Food Bowl of Australia’, it is Andrew Peace Wines’ main source of water and nutrients.


Nutritious sandy and clay earth provide Andrew Peace Wines with a soil type typical of Champagne and Burgundy, and ideal for both red and white wines.
