Star Cellar Door
Perhaps it’s the fact that Trevor Mast himself – Victorian winemaking icon and pioneer behind esteemed Mt Langi Ghiran – chose the site as being perfectly suited to pinot noir, but there’s something utterly Australian about a tasting at Eastern Peake.
Owen Latta, son of Norman and Dianne who started the property in the late 1970s, now manages the estate’s winemaking and viticulture. After many years producing wine under the Eastern Peake label, Owen started producing more experimental styles under his own label Latta Vino – and winning GT WINE’s 2018 Young Winemaker of the Year Award.
Both Owen and Norm host personalised tastings for small groups in the cellar door they built themselves on their rural property. Christina Kaigg
