"They make a bit of everything at Pfeiffer including two varieties you wouldn't normally associate with Rutherglen - Pinot Noir and Gamay. The fortifieds are wonderful and the hospitality peerless."Ben Canaider"
They also make a wonderful wine called The Piper which is released with a decade or more bottle age and contains the grape variety Cabernet Sanzey which is so obscure it doesn't even rate a mention in the Oxford Companion to Wine.
P.G Wodehouse's character Psmith ("The P is silent!") would not be out of place at Pfeiffer Wines. "Pfeiffers Pfine Wine Pfor Pfine Pfood and Pfabulous Pfolk", reads the slogan at the winery at Wahgunyah, near Rutherglen.
It labours the point somewhat, but you get the message about the redundant "p". There is nothing redundant about Pfeiffers, especially now the second generation is on board. Founders Chris and Robyn have their daughter Jennifer fully involved these days.
And they've restored the old bridge across Sunday Creek, a tributary of the Murray near their winery, no doubt with a rosy future in mind. A disused wooden bridge may seem an odd thing to restore, but if you've ever walked across it, or sat under its umbrellas having a lazy lunch, you'll understand. It is a beautiful and tranquil spot."
