Pikes Wines

Winery

The Pike family (through Dorsetshire immigrant Henry Pike) established a brewery at Oakbank in 1886 producing quality beer, aerated waters and cordials, however this business was ultimately closed down in 1968. In 1984, Henry’s great, great, grandsons, brothers, Neil (winemaker) and Andrew (viticulturist) established Pikes Wines at Polish Hill River. The first Pikes wines were released in the Spring of 1985, and the winery has since been growing, producing and marketing a range of premium table wines which reflect the region, and the varieties grown on their 80-hectare Estate. Pikes Riesling is internationally renowned as one of Australia’s pre-eminent dry Rieslings, with the 2013 vintage winning ‘Australia’s Best Riesling’ at the 2013 Canberra International Riesling Challenge.
