Hugh Hamilton Location and History
Hugh Hamilton is the fifth generation in a pioneering family who planted the first vineyards at Glenelg in 1837, less than one year after European settlement in South Australia. Every family has a black sheep and Hugh Hamilton is it. Hugh does things his own way and his sense of the ridiculous is known to go into full swing whilst consuming generous amounts of his own product. The one thing that Hugh is serious about is what goes into the bottle and the fact that you are only as good as your last vintage, irrespective of how many years you have under your belt. As you would expect from a black sheep, Hugh prefers to remain rather elusive so you never quite know where he will be.
Hugh Hamilton Wine Making and Philosophy
Hugh goes by the philosophy that ‘wine is constant proof that God loves us and likes to see us happy,’ so said Benjamin Franklin. Hugh has a clear vision and produces wine accordingly. He is a firm believer in the wine and food experience, especially in the company of good friends and lively conversation. His wines are eminently drinkable, showing such flavour and character they often inspire dinner party conversation in their own right. He is responsible for numerous individualistic wines from unusual grape varieties, including sangiovese, tempranillo, saperavi and viognier. The black sheep is the master of a most reprobate flock, with characters such as the Rascal shiraz, the Scallywag chardonnay and the Villain cabernet sauvignon, it is no ordinary line up.
