The Listening Station
An Andrew Peace wine, Victoria in south-west Australia, Chardonnay by UK importer Boutinot
Australia, Victoria, The Listening Station, chardonnay, 2016

The white wine has been bottled for Boutinot, who represents and markets wines from around the world, including their own. Andrew Peace produces his own as well, many under his own label(s). Based in the small town of Piangil, approx. 380 kilometres north-west of Melbourne, along the river Murray, close to the ‘border’ of Victoria and New South Wales.

His ‘old man’ (Andrew’s) bought a vineyard in 1980, just passing, with no back ground in wine making and a tee-totaller. The family got into it and developed the business, whilst learning the skills and the first vintage came in 1995. They are now one of the largest family owned wineries and, with their third generation involved, collecting numerous awards along the way. Listening Station refers its name to the various listening-tracking stations in Australia, playing their important part in the space era, such as the Apollo project.
