    Notes 
    • St Peter's Vineyard, North Road, GREAT WESTERN
      Statement of Significance
      St Peter's vineyard was the first vineyard and winery in Great Western. It was established by Jean Pierre and Anne Marie Trouette in 1863. The only remaining obvious reminders of the vineyard orchard and homestead are the gateway and flanking English Elm trees marking the entrance to the property.
      The site is of historical significance to Great Western. It indicates the early settlement of land in the area for vineyard purposes. It is of importance for its potential to provide information that contributes to a greater understanding of the history of the settlement and establishment of the district, and has a strong presumption of archaeological research potential. Further historical research and archaeological investigation is recommended.RECOMMENDED LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE: Conservation Desirable

      History
      The history has been extracted from Chapters 5 and 6, Grapes and Gold by Arthur Kuehne

      Jean Pierre Trouette was born in 1833 and came from a family of winemakers in the French town of Estamps. He left home for Monte Video in Uruguay where he stayed for three years before he emigrated to Australia. He arrived in Adelaide in 1853 and worked in the copper mines of Burra for six months before heading off in the search of gold. In Beechworth he met Marie Louise Blampied and her brother Emile who had run away from France for the adventure of the Victorian goldfields. The three joined forces and transported supplies for the miners. In 1856 Marie and Pierre married in Beechworth and in 1858 they moved to Great Western where the two men engaged in mining. They bought a block of land and commenced supplying vegetables to the miners. In 1863, having obtained freehold of the property, Jean Pierre Trouette planted the first vines. He began with planting half an acre of vines and named the vineyard, St Peter's. By 1867 the estate carried 50,000 vines and 2000 fruit trees, including cherries, plums, quinces and also some olives and chestnuts.
      For the production of wine at vintage time, screw presses were used. A large square tank, 18 feet by 18 feet and three feet deep was built above ground level. The tank was constructed of brick, lined with cement and was divided into two sections. In the one compartment the trading of the grapes took place, while the screw press was placed in the other section.
      They achieved the first recognition for their wines in 1867 when a coach driver, after sampling the wine, entered the wine in the Ballarat National Agricultural Show where it won a gold medal. By 1878 the shelves of St Peter's held a dazzling array of trophies and medals from as far afield as Philadelphia, Austria, London and France.
      The Trouettes were very hospitable and their house was constructed with a large room in the centre from which the doors led to numerous other rooms. The large hall was 50 feet long by 30 feet wide and the roof was supported on five large squared off tree trunks. They entertained up to 100 people in the space. Each year, after the grapes had been gathered in, the "Vendage" or "Harvest Home" was celebrated at St Peter's. This would start late in the afternoon and continue through until daybreak the next morning.
      Jean Pierre Trouette was dedicated to the establishment of the wine industry and he also served the community on the Stawell Shire Council. He was the first Councillor to serve the East Riding after the Shire had been divided into Ridings and he served on council until his death in November 1885.
      The vineyard was taken over by his son Nicholas but tragedy struck three months later when a worker was sent to clean an underground wine vat. He was overcome by fumes and another worker attempted to rescue him but he fell from the rope. Nicholas Trouette went into the tank and secured a rope around the worker but was overcome by fumes. His sister Marie went to assist but had to be rescued from the vat. Nicholas was finally raised from the vat but along with another of the workers could not be revived. Marie Trouette won the bronze medal of the Royal humane Society for her attempts to rescue her brother.
      Following the death of Nicholas Trouette and a number of crop failures and bad seasons, St Peter's was sold in 1897 to an English family named Merton. Ann Marie Trouette lived in retirement until her death in 1905. Her well loved, community minded and public spirited daughter, Marie, took an active part in the life of Great Western until she died in 1927 at the age of 70. The vineyards, orchards, winery and the gracious old homestead of St Peter's are all long gone. Two English trees shade an old iron gate which once lead to the homestead.
