Alliance Wine Australia
Authentic Australian Wines with a Celtic Twist
Alliance Wine Australia was formed in 2006
and is led by Peter Leske, Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW.
Bringing together all of our core projects under one roof,
Alliance Wine Australia is a broad church. Concentrating on making
premium wines with a subtlety, structure and finesse that is at one
with our core markets, we're not afraid to experiment, innovate and
"twist" classic styles whilst seeking inspiration from the past to
help craft the future.
Peter Leske has huge experience in many aspects of the
Australian industry and was head winemaker for Nepenthe for 10
years. Fergal and Giles both have extensive experience and passion
for Australia, having tasted and travelled there for over 15 years
apiece - bringing with them a tireless energy for twisting classic
styles and importing ideas from their travels elsewhere.
Working with Growers
Drawing on this experience, we work alongside growers and
wineries to craft a range of seriously individual wines that are a
true reflection of the people that made them and the land on which
they were grown. We're not looking for the mass produced or the
banal - we seek out fruit, land, people and ideas that inspire us
and, in turn, inspire you.
Peter Leske was head winemaker for
Nepenthe for 10 years - establishing it as one of the pre-eminent
wineries in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia. With the
original winery having been mothballed following an acquisition,
Peter saw the opportunity to return "home" and in 2010 acquired the
old Nepenthe winery which is now known as Revenir. Alongside our
functional base near Port Adelaide, Revenir is Alliance Wine
