Mount Pleasant Wines


For over a century, Mount Pleasant has set the benchmark for winemaking in Australia.

As you step into the historic homestead you can start to understand that the Mount Pleasant homestead is the perfect setting to explore some of Australia’s most iconic wines. Sitting in their cellar door overlooking the vineyards that O’Shea transported into the vineyards.

Founded by Maurice O’Shea in 1921, whose contribution to Australian wine cannot be understated, widely known as the founding father of modern Australian winemaking.

The rare ancestral vines include some of the oldest clone plantings in the country. This makes the Old Hill vineyard, while best known for Shiraz, the oldest Pinot Noir vineyard in Australia.

Discover the complexity of Hunter Valley Shiraz and Pinot Noir, and the aging capabilities of the widely acclaimed Lovedale Semillon, which is regarded as one of the greatest Semillon vineyards in the world.

The chief winemaker, Adrian Sparks, has crafted a selection of tasting experiences that showcase the beauty and individuality of the unique and historic vineyard sites.

Mount Pleasant is a winery that, for over 100 years, has challenged conventions and set the standard for modern Australian winemaking.

Many have followed, but there is only one Mount Pleasant.
