Dalrymple Vineyard

Tasmania’s rugged coastal beauty and cool climate terrain first ignited a passionate pursuit to craft the perfect single site wines back in 1987, well before the rest of the world caught on. Such inspired the founding of Dalrymple Vineyards on the sloping hills of Pipers River, overlooking Bass Strait. Since then, people around the world have fallen in love with the Tasmanian landscape, wild and breathtaking, and the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that thrives here. From every patch of land comes the demand for meticulous attention that, when granted, awards exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines perfectly reflective of the pristine beauty of every single site.​
Mother Nature calls the shots, and you can taste it.

Pete was raised on his parents’ Tasmanian sheep farm before winemaking captured his heart. After studying the craft at Roseworthy Agricultural College, Pete took flight, gathering many-an “aha” moments across Burgundy, Bordeaux, California and New Zealand.  He’ll never forget his first vintage overseas, tasting juice straight off the press at a chateau in Bordeaux. “It showed me just how great wine can be when it’s not pushed or forced,” he says. “And if it’s the right variety, grown in the right place, and made in the right way.
After more than 20 years in the industry and a decade here at Dalrymple, Pete’s sense of adventure shows no sign of waning. “I got out of the comfort zone early in my career,” he says.” When he’s not making wine, you’ll usually find him fishing or cooking up nature’s bounty.
