Peter Gago is part of a short, but illustrious line of Penfolds chief winemakers. From Mary Penfold to Max Schubert and through to Peter Gago — an unbroken chain of over 160 years. Respectful of the Penfolds style, Peter believes it’s his job to both maintain and contest, to continue to do what works and always has, but also to take risks and strive towards excellence in new and creative ways. It’s good to be wrong, he says, because that means you’re doing something you’ve never done before – and learning another lesson on the journey toward truly outstanding wine.
To the visionaries. To those who do things for love not money.
160 years of winemaking.
