Peter Dredge

After an injury sidelined a young Peter Dredge from his chosen sporting career, winemaking dropped a lifeline. A healthy tenure buried inside the Petaluma and then Bay of Fires machines provided a backbone for a career that became significantly more public when he launched his Dr. Edge label and took on the winemaking duties at the important but slightly dusty Meadowbank, in the Derwent Valley. In addition to Meadowbank, Dredge also makes wine (and a beer and wine hybrid) under the
Brian label with writer, raconteur and man- about-the-industry Mike Bennie. The MO is to make wines in the opposite way to how they would imagine most winemakers called Brian would make them. Think lots of skin contact, nothing added, and nothing removed – and zero pretence.
