In 2017 Hugh Hamilton Wines celebrated 180 years since Hugh’s great, great grandfather came to South Australia in 1837 and planted what were the first vines in the new colony and made the first wine here. This places the family with the longest continual presence in the Australian wine industry today. Hugh’s daughter, Mary Hamilton, is the only person from the 6th generation to still be in business.
Hugh is the 5th generation of the Australian Hamilton dynasty. As with all families one is a Black Sheep and Hugh Hamilton is it. His 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, is now the CEO of the family winery and brings insight, energy and enormous talent to this exciting winery.
Hugh Hamilton Wines exists to create exceptional wines, topics of conversation & new experiences.
