Peter Devison, Cadaretta Winemaker

 

Peter Devison grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His interest in wine was kindled while attending the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Peter worked in fine dining and wine retail, working his way through school. Ultimately, he traveled to New Zealand, where he earned his Bachelor's Degree in Oenology and Viticulture from Lincoln University. 

From 2003 to 2005 Peter worked harvests in New Zealand and Australia. He then relocated to Washington State, where he's been a head winemaker since 2005. Most recently, Peter was winemaker for EFESTE/Oldfield Cellars in Woodinville, Washington. 

Now, after completing 18 vintages (Northern and Southern hemispheres), 12 of those as head of wine production, Peter takes over the reins at Cadaretta and Inconceivable for Middleton Family Wines. 

"I'm eager to sink my roots in the Walla Walla Valley," says Peter. "We can make world-class wines here, wines with a distinctive voice, that can tell a story."
