The good things in life should be shared with others

Our wines are best described as fresh, fruity and very approachable. Just like us. We are open to everyone and want as many people as possible to be able to enjoy our wine. What’s the point of a wonderful bottle of wine if you cannot share it with people who are precious to you? It’s the essence of our wines.

Bound by our love of wine and our passion for winemaking

It goes without saying that we invest a great deal into the latest technologies, ensuring that our winery conditions are perfect. Having said that, it is ultimately the expertise brought by our people that gives our wine its distinct taste. 

From our vineyard staff, who still handpick every single grape, to our winemaker, who meticulously calculates the ideal timing for harvest, it’s this attention to detail that determines the unique character of our wines. Everyone at p&f wineries contributes to the taste, flavor and quality of each bottle.
