Savour a behind scenes experience at Eastern Peake. Join the ever-passionate Owen Latta along a guided winery tour of Eastern Peake as he shares the farming and winemaking philosophy behind the production of his highly regarded range of Eastern Peake and Latta wines. Driven by the trust he holds for his family vineyard and the growers he works with, Owen’s somewhat magical hands-off approach to his winemaking will ignite your curiosity. Experience the viticulture process as you taste wines resting in barrel and tank, check in on the vital malolactic fermentation, tasting current vintages and museum wines, savour share plates of locally sourced artisan cheeses and charcuterie, all while feeling inspired by Owen’s natural approach to his craft - instilled as a result of being cast into vintage as a teenager more than two decades ago. Eastern Peake winery sits on high plateau, the vineyard at 430 metres above sea level amidst rolling sheep grazing paddocks in the outskirts of Ballarat and offering panoramic views of the Creswick Valley. The winery’s long-standing philosophy is that great wines are produced from healthy vineyards, with the wine always reflecting the place where it’s grown, never the winemaker himself.
