O'Shea selected the Lovedale vineyard site on the flats of the Pokolbin region of the Hunter Valley in 1939. Unfortunately, the outbreak of the Second World War saw O'Shea's plans curtailed as the land was reclaimed by the Australian Government for use as an emergency landing field as a part of the war effort. O'Shea eventually planted his first Semillon vines on the site in the spring of 1946. Over the years, Lovedale has proven to be another brilliant choice by Maurice O'Shea, as the sandy aggregate loam soils help to capture the perfect tightness and acidity for making quality Semillon. The vineyard is cultivated using sustainable techniques, such as employing mulch to nourish the vines and growing cover crops to increase the biodiversity in the soil. This sustainable approach has resulted in some of the healthiest vines on the estate in recent years; the vines have developed plentiful canopies which have assisted in preventing sunburn of the fruit. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimal maturity.

Mount Pleasant, based in the Hunter Valley, was established in 1921 by the legendary winemaker Maurice O’Shea, from 16.3 hectares of adjoining parcels of land, which he named Mount Pleasant. As Chief Winemaker, Maurice went on to make some of Australia’s greatest wines and his reputation stands as the grandfather of Australian wine and a pioneer of the industry. Sadly, Maurice O’Shea passed away in 1956, but his legacy has been continued by top class winemakers. In 2017, Mount Pleasant was named Winery of the Year by James Halliday and in 2018 award-winning winemaker Adrian Sparks took over as the fifth Chief Winemaker and continues to produce world class wines from this renowned estate.
