Peter Dredge also known as Dr Edge produces world class Pinot Noir from three different vineyard sites in Tasmania located on the North, East and South side of the island. Three of his wines are individual single vineyard wines that are designed to show the unique expressions of each vineyard and highlight the regional diversity across Tasmania. The three wines are simply named North, made from grapes from the Stoney Rise Vineyard in the Tamar Valley, East, produced from Hazards Vineyards in the East Coast region and South which is made from Meadowbank Vineyard in the Derwent Valley. Dr Edge also produces a fourth Pinot Noir that is blend of all three sites that he has named Tasmania.

Peter, or Dredgy as he has always been known as to his friends, has had an incredible career starting out at Petaluma in Adelaide Hills which is where he gained the nickname Dr Edge and also where he was encouraged to travel in order to gain experience working a harvest at Dr Loosen in Germany. With a developing interest in Pinot Noir and cool climate winemaking, Peter took a temporary job at Bay of Fires winery in Northern Tasmania which ended up turning into a permanent position as the senior winemaker and site manager. It was here that he was introduced to such names as Paul Lapsley, the chief winemaker at Hardys and sparkling wine legend, Ed Carr of House of Arras.

The Dr Edge wines have become a cult icon of Tasmanian wine and his releases are eagerly anticipated. The single vineyard wines are only made in small quantities each year with tiny allocations being offered, most of which are snapped up by the eagerly waiting Australian market. Peter’s experience working with such great names as Bay of Fires, Petaluma and House of Arras is testament to his talents as a winemaker, a fact that speaks in volumes through his wines.
