Meet Peter Gago — the winemaker driving Penfolds’ worldwide success
Peter Gago admits he’s in the grip of the grape. Others might say obsessed. Years ago the man who is now chief winemaker at Penfolds donated some treasured bottles from his extensive collection for a raffle to raise money for his wife, Labor MP Gail Gago’s election campaign. Not long after the draw, remorse kicked in. Gago couldn’t help himself: he went and bought two of the prizes back from the winners.
