Wine words

THE land and farming runs in Fred Peacock’s blood. His forebears were among the earliest fruit processors and exporters in Hobart Town, reaching back to the mid 1800s. With his grandfather and father both involved in those businesses, it’s little surprise Peacock spent many a day through his childhood running about in orchards and hop fields, checking on sheep and exploring the jam factory.
