Thompson Estate

thompsonestate Logo Jane and Peter Thompson purchased the Thompson Estate property in 1994, and the first plantings of chardonnay and pinot were in 1997, followed by the cabernet plantings in 1998.

Peter is a Perth based heart specialist who sees no conflict between being a wine producer and his medical specialty. In fact, the heart health benefits of wine are widely accepted and there is a long tradition of medical involvement in wine making.

Many of the pioneers of the Australian wine industry were doctors and the first vineyard in Margaret River was planted by heart specialist Dr Tom Cullity. The medical wine connection in Margaret River is particularly strong. Moss Wood vineyard was planted by Peter’s longtime friend and medical school colleague, Dr Bill Pannell.

Thompson Estate employs the best winemakers in the district to make their wine, using different winemakers for different varieties. This has allowed Thompson Estate to excel in all varieties. Their Chardonnay is close to the best the region has to offer, as is their Cabernet. Perhaps where they score best of the best for the district, is in their Pinot Noir.
