Located in Manjimup, Peos Estate handcrafts premium wine and is 100% family owned and operated by the Peos family. This boutique region is one of the most remote wine districts in the world and is home to some of the globe’s oldest soils. This, combined with the area’s elevation, pristine water and cool temperatures, means Manjimup is perfectly poised to consistently produce world-class wines. The Peos portfolio of wines is produced entirely from estate-grown grapes.
Manjimup has been home to the Macedonian-born Peos family for more than 80 years. With viticulture in their historical veins, brothers Vic, John, Kon and Chris banded together in 1996 to create their dream vineyard as a legacy to their late father, Jim Peos, and late grandfather, Py Peos. A passionate farmer, Py began cultivating grapes and producing wine whilst living in Macedonia almost a century ago. He passed this love of wine down to his son, Jim, who continued to farm grapes and make wine in Macedonia until he joined Py and the rest of his family in Australia in 1951. The establishment of Peos Estate winery by the third generation Peos brothers has turned the family dynasty full-circle back to where it belongs, growing grapes and producing wine to remember.
What does the Four Aces stand for?
This range is named after the four magnificent Karri trees that are nearly 75 meters tall and over 400 years old and are located down the road from our winery in Manjimup. There is a placard near the tree that announces: ‘The Karri tree is one of the largest living things on our planet. One tree can weigh over 200 tonnes, grow to 90 m in height, use 170 litres of water a day, produce 1kg of honey per season, take nine people holding hands to span its girth, and do it all in 400 years.’ These simple statistics, although impressive, still do not capture the majesty and impressiveness of a fully-grown Karri tree.
