Following your dreams and drinking deeply of life
Peter Althaus searched the world for a vineyard to produce Bordeaux-inspired
wines and settled on the Coal River Valley in Hobart in 1989.
An ex-IBM executive, and Founder of the Swiss wine-tasting association,
Peter had an extra-ordinary palate.
And within years Peter was producing award-winning wines like a wooded
Sauvignon Blanc that Halliday would describe as the best in the world.
The highly intelligent, intense, quietly spoken, and humble man produced some
of the greatest wines Australia has ever known.
Through Domaine-A, his memory will live on, as will his legacy of following
your dreams and drinking deeply of life.
