Petersons Wines have been at the forefront of the wine industry in the Hunter Valley since 1971 when it was established by Colin Peterson and his parents, Ian and Shirley. Since the first vintage in 1981, Petersons have become recognised for producing premium, award winning wines; a tradition that continues today.
Petersons Wines have two cellar doors in the Hunter Valley. The Cellar Door at Mount View, has been the home and headquarters for Petersons Family Wines for over 45 years. Situated on a hilltop surrounded by vineyards, it has a perfect position with uninterrupted views of Mount Sugarloaf and the Watagan Mountains. Our other Cellar door is located in in the heart of Pokolbin on Broke Road.
Our friendly staff will always provide you with an engaging experience along with a taste of our delicious wines.
The story began when Ian Peterson and his family bought an old dairy farm at Mount View, Hunter Valley and established 10 acres of semillon grapes to supply a nearby winery.
As the vines flourished, new varieties were planted, including chardonnay, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir, and Ian hired a cellar hand to help him produce his first wines.
Petersons Family Wines have been recognised for making quality wines since 1981.
Our Cellar Door on Broke Road maintains this tradition allowing you to enjoy your favourite Hunter Valley chardonnay, full bodied or aged premium red wines, or sticky dessert wines right in the centre of Pokolbin.
For over 40 years Petersons Family Wines have been producing multi-award winning boutique wines. In 1996 we established Petersons of Mudgee in the heart of Mudgee wine country.
Be welcomed at the cellar door by our friendly staff, relax and sample our superb range of sparkling wines, crisp whites and full bodied reds or perhaps one of our unique varietals whilst enjoying the picturesque surroundings.
Located at the award winning Peterson’s Armidale Winery, the guesthouse defines New England’s finest boutique getaway, offering seven elegant rooms with king sized beds, antique furniture, ensuites and other contemporary touches to ensure your stay is perfect.

Each vineyard showcases the best of the Petersons range. In the heart of Mudgee’s red wine region you will find Glenesk Estate. Armidale’s cellar door, a beautifully restored horse stable that hosts weekend barbecue lunches, is located in the picturesque New England Region of NSW.
Red fans are treated to high quality varietals from the warm climates of the Hunter and Mudgee, while the cool Armidale climate produces reds of fine elegance and finesse.
The elegant Mudgee Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich mix of forest fruit, spice and bitter chocolate accentuated by aromas of cedar and cassis, while the Hunter Valley Shiraz offers aromas of nutmeg, peppercorns and plum and an earthy, peppery palate that matches perfectly with warming winter meals.
Over the years Petersons Wines has since expanded to produce refined reds from a vineyard in Mudgee, while the rich red-brown basalt soils of Armidale host semillon, sauvignon blanc, riesling, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and pinot noir.
In Armidale, the vines were first harvested in 2002, and continue to produce exceptional fruit each year.
The vineyard’s Guesthouse, dating back to 1911, is the ultimate getaway, offering elegant, traditional and luxurious accommodation.
