THE TASTE OF A LEGACY
It was by the light of a gas lantern, the story of Mount Pleasant was created.
It was 1921 and Maurice O’Shea wasn’t afforded the luxury of electricity. Equipped with only basic tools and an old basket press, O’Shea brought Mount Pleasant to life.
O’Shea began his pioneering work producing what went on to become some of the most highly regarded red wines in Australia. A master winemaker with a remarkable palate, O’Shea’s blending techniques and sophisticated use of oak – talents learnt while studying oenology at France’s Montpellier University – were credited with producing red table wines of enormous flavour, intensity and longevity.
More than 90 years on, the equipment and names have evolved, but the principles and the vineyards remain the same. Along with a philosophy of honouring O’Shea’s legacy through individual wines, special sites and celebrated styles.
Their vineyards stretch back to the very birth of the Hunter Valley as a premium wine growing region, planted by Charles King in 1880 and worked on by legendary winemaker and Mount Pleasant founder, Maurice O’Shea.
Mount Pleasant’s award winning history dates back to its early beginnings, a tradition of success which continues today.
Led by Chief Winemaker, Adrian Sparks, the Mount Pleasant team demonstrate a philosophy focused on sharing the best of the Hunter Valley told through every vineyard and every glass.
