Pettavel Wine is an iconic brand in the Geelong region. In April 2004, the Prime Minister came to visit Geelong and was impressed by the Pettavel Brand. He held a grand banquet in Pettavel, treating guests to our famous Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. Local people were so proud of Pettavel wines that eight weeks after the visit the government committed $186 million to the local economy. This money was to support local projects in response to proposals presented in the meeting. It was commented that it must be the charm of the Pettavel wines that made this possible.
