Peos Estate: Four Aces
Peos Estate is a beautiful piece of this earth, that produce outstanding quality wines. The winery is nestled in the heart of the Manjimup region in Western Australia.
Manjimup is known as the 'Jewel of the South West' and is a thriving community based around avocado’s, truffles, agriculture, timber and wine industries. There are also numerous festivals celebrated throughout the year including the Cherry Harmony Festival.
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, plucked from the vines planted on our 90 acre Manjimup property.
Peos Estate's Four Aces wine range is named after the four magnificent Karri trees, which are nearly 75 meters tall and over 400 years old and are located down the road from our winery in Manjimup. The Karri tree is one of the largest living things on our planet. One tree can weigh over 200 tonnes, grow to 90m in height, take nine people holding hands to span its girth, and do it all in 400 years.
Nestled amongst the tranquil tall timbers the Peos vineyard's gravelly soil is ideally suited to crafting premium wines, and with the Peos family having tilled those soils for nearly a century we believe this is a fitting moniker for our flagship range.
