Kellermeister is owned and operated by the Pearce family. While continuing to do small things well and have fun along the way, winemaker / owner Mark Pearce has firmly established considerable pedigree, particularly around the winery’s Shiraz and Grenache based wines in recent years. Under Mark’s leadership the winery achieved significant success on the world’s biggest stage, the International Wine Challenge, in London in 2012 being awarded the World’s Best Shiraz, Australia’s Best Shiraz and the Barossa’s Best Shiraz and then followed up in 2018 with the flagship Shiraz, The Meister, being named in the world’s Top 5 Shiraz wines at the Syrah du Monde, France. Today the winery is rated in the top 7% of Australian producers by Australia’s most authoritative and acclaimed wine critic, James Halliday.
