wine business. His own wine, ess&see continues to be well received and
highly sought after.
Peter Schell has called the Barossa Valley home for over ten years, after the
chance to buy a parcel of old-vine Mataro in 2001 started his career as a wine
producer and the Spinifex label was born. In that time he has also worked six
French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy.
The time spent in the south of France has fuelled his interest in making unique,
hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of
the varieties and their provenance.
