Pepper Tree Wines Stands Head and Shoulders above other Boutique Wineries in the Hunter Valley with a string of Awards


SYDNEY, Australia December, 2012 – The Pepper Tree winery – one of the most popular Boutique Wineries in the Hunter Valley – has evolved into one of the best show pieces of the Hunter Valley Wine region. Founded in 1991, Pepper Tree Wines is part of a famous triumvirate that offers quality food, wine, and accommodation in Hunter Valley comprising Peppers Convent Guesthouse, Roberts Restaurant, and Pepper Tree Wines. Surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens and beautiful vineyards, this winery is the perfect place to enjoy some sunshine over summer with a glass or two of multi award-winning wine.

Pepper Tree Wines is a renowned Hunter Valley boutique Cellar Door that is also a regular tourism winner thanks to Chief Winemaker Jim Chatto, a Wine Science graduate from Charles Sturt University.

“Pepper Tree produces Hunter Valley single vineyard wines and premium varietal wines sourced from its own vineyards in the Hunter, Orange, Coonawarra, and Wrattonbully regions,” says Jim, who won the coveted title of Hunter Valley Winemaker of the Year in 2009 just two years after joining the company. “Pepper Tree currently produces more than forty thousand cases per year with distribution well beyond cellar door into specialty stores and fine restaurants throughout Australia and selected international markets.”

Jim’s philosophies and techniques reflect that of a winemaker of the world as he has worked locally in the Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and Tasmania, as well as internationally in Hungary and France. His desire for personal and professional growth motivated him to move back to Hunter Valley where he enjoys the rewards of winemaking, especially the Hunter’s semillon and shiraz with their distinctive regional characteristics. Jim is also a National Wine Show Judge and has been described by James Halliday as having a ‘remarkably acute palate’.
