“Give it all you’ve got, and the rest will follow” Peter Atyeo
“Ads”, a name bestowed upon Peter during his time on a cattle-run in a place called Morgan, about 161 kms north east of Adelaide, is known as a straight-forward, down-to-earth, humble and unassuming bloke.
Working as company viticulturist for Greenock Creek Wines since 2007, Peter lives by the well-worn idea that wine is made in the vineyard. Each plot is tended with a view to delivering the highest quality grapes to be converted into wine.
He is dedicated to producing fruit that maintains Greenock Creek’s characterful and intense expression of Barossa wine. Within the vineyard portfolio, Peter manages multiple vineyard sites, with vines ranging from 90 to 130 years old.
At the foundation of Peter’s passion for viticulture is the preservation of these vines to ensure their long-term sustainability and a place in Barossa’s history.
