Our story

Nestled in the foothills of the Brokenback Ranges, Maurice O'Shea crafted some of Australia's finest table wines, creating the legend of Mount Pleasant Wines.

It was 1921 and Maurice O’Shea wasn’t afforded the luxury of electricity. Equipped with only basic tools and an old basket press, O’Shea brought Mount Pleasant to life.

More than 90 years on, the equipment and names have evolved, but the principles and the vineyards remain the same. Along with a philosophy of honouring O’Shea’s legacy through individual wines, special sites and celebrated styles.
