A lot has changed since dad drove past the vineyard in 1980 and bought it as an excuse to escape from the city. The family has put in a lot of hard work since then to build ourselves into one of Australia’s leading family owned wineries. I hope you enjoy these wines as much as we’ve enjoyed making them.
Every bottle tells a story
Through three generations of Peace family toil the ‘country retreat’ vineyard produced its first vintage in 1995 and a commercial winery was born.
Every vintage since has accompanied another chapter of family life – celebrations, milestones and happy memories.
Nurtured from the rich Murray River bank soil, the vineyard was established in the 1960’s. From a humble beginning in 1995 with a grape intake of 1711 tonnes, Andrew Peace Wines has grown to be one of Australia’s largest family owned wineries, crushing over 30,000 tonnes per year.
Our winery is utterly contemporary, driven with sound business acumen and utilising first class technology. We are proud to be consistently among the top 20 performing Australian exporters and enjoy sharing our award winning wines with the world.
We believe this is the Aussie Hero of our wines – laid back, easy going, but still full of energy and enthusiasm. This is our range that boasts the most individual grape varieties and blends. From Shiraz to Cabernet and Chardonnay to Sauvignon Blanc – odds are there is something here for you.
Each year we travel around South Australia and select the best grapes we can source for the Wine Makers’ Choice range. While not from our own vineyard, all the grapes are sourced from our family of growers from some of Australia’s best known wine regions. Expect wines from Clare Valley, Wrattonbully, Langhorne Creek, Coonawarra, and the Barossa all produced to reflect the characteristics these regions are renowned for.
Estate range features the best grapes the Swan Hill region has to offer. Being a hot climate it produces very bold and distinct wines. The Estate Chardonnay is a big favourite amongst many of our staff. The good life is often celebrated at “chardonnay o’clock” when a cold bottle is pulled from our cellar.
“Australia Felix” was a term used by explorer Thomas Mitchell to describe the lush pasture he encountered as he explored what is now the Swan Hill region. Our Australia Felix Lives up to this name and showcases some of the most outstanding wines our region has to offer.
From vegan and preservative free wines to coffee infused cabernet this range has all our experimental and extra interesting wines!

Heart & Soul
We made these Moscato’s for those who love the sweeter side of things. Big bold fruit flavors with a touch of spritz makes these wines perfect for a hot summer’s day. Lower in alcohol than our other wines, this is perfect for a relaxing Sunday outside with friends.
Blends & Alternative Varieties
If you’re one who doesn’t like to follow the crowd, or like a little bit of this and a little bit of that, then this range is for you. From our stunning Colour Of Raven Black Wine to our 2018 Zweitgelt, this is a must try range, but be quick, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Over the last 25 years we have planted more than 15,000 trees – some of which have formed corridors all the way from the river to the edge of our property.
OF WASTE WATER RE-USED
There are many ways that we have worked to achieve this, including using drip irrigation and water monitoring devices when cultivating our land.
OF SOLAR PANELS
Over the year we use around 3.170 megawatts of electricity and (approximately) 7.5% of this comes from our 200kw solar panel system. We have plans to install even more solar panels and are aiming to have 15% of our power come from this renewable source.
