Pacific Wines Ltd.
My name is Craig Penlington, a sixth generation Australian living in Switzerland since the 90's.
I have been directly involved in the food & wine industry since my childhood as my family owned a restaurant in the Snowy Mountain in Victoria.
I am a passionate Chef, and together with my wife, we are currently running a prestigious restaurant in an eighteen century manor in Neuchâtel "The Hotel DuPeyrou".
First and for most, as an Australian, I felt impelt as any citizen proud of their country of origin to display a small selection of wines from home. Obviously favouring local wines first, with a little chef selection from down under.
I return to Australia on a regular basis and I follow the winemakers and the future harvest and of course to discover some new tasteful wine.
It takes a lot of wine tasting and meeting new winemakers to bring you the wine I have selected. I can therefore guarantee you the best quality and wine I particularly enjoy and want you to discover.
Those trips also enables me to find small family vineyard dedicated to make quality rather than quantity for the enjoyment of my customers.
