Parker Estate was founded on one man’s vision to defy expectations. Their story is a story of Australian ambition and craftmanship.

John Parker believed that with the right patch of dirt, the right climate and the right clones, he could craft Cabernet which rivalled Bordeaux. And he did.
In 1985 he planted twenty hectares of vine on the 27km cigar shaped strip of terra rossa soil that is famous for crafting some of Australia’s most famous Cabernet.
His inaugural release, the 1988 First Growth, caught the world’s attention. The wine won the Penfold Hyland Trophy in Perth and was judged the sixth highest rated Bordeaux-style in the 1991 International Wine Challenge in London. With just one wine, John Parker put Parker Estate and his Abbey Vineyard on the map.

Today, the Parker Estate winery still stands tall and proud on the famous terra rossa soil they are so proud to celebrate with the wines they craft. It’s a symbol of their ongoing commitment to John Parker’s vision. Parker Estate continues to achieve recognition through medals, trophies and accolades. In 2010, First Growth entered the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine as ‘Excellent’.
Parker Estate remains focused on its endeavour to craft the best Cabernet for the world to enjoy.
