History & Geography
Hugh Hamilton is the 5th generation of the Australian Hamilton wine dynasty that stretches back over 180 years. In 1837 Hugh’s great great grandfather Richard emigrated to the new colony of South Australia and planted Australia’s first wine grapes. As with all families one is a Black Sheep and Hugh is it. Hugh Hamilton wines are far from ordinary. Hugh has a clear vision about the way he sees wines and he produces accordingly. Hugh’s legacy continues as Mary Hamilton, his daughter and 6th generation, is now the CEO of the family winery and brings insight, energy and enormous talent to this exciting winery.
