At Mount Pleasant we watch over some of Australia’s most historic and precious vineyards. Founded in 1921 by the legendary Maurice O’Shea, whose contribution to Australian wine cannot be understated. Widely recognised for setting the standard for modern Australian winemaking, his ‘fanatical perfectionism’ saw him create Mount Pleasant’s signature style of elegance, balance and exceptional longevity.
For 100 years, Mount Pleasant has produced iconic, elegant and expressive wines championing the fruit and individual character of our four vineyard sites. Our rare ancestral vines include some of the oldest clone plantings in the country. This makes our Old Hill vineyard, while best known for Shiraz, the oldest Pinot Noir vineyard in Australia.
Mount Pleasant wines let you discover the unique Hunter Valley signature: wines with an ‘old world’ elegance and exceptional balance.
