The new Estate will be a true reflection of the St Hugo brand and bring to life Hugo Gramp's legacy of success, sophistication and excellence.
The building's history is rooted in the very origins of the Barossa as a settlement and a wine region. It was originally built in the 1850s by William Jacob, who conducted the first survey of the region in 1839 and chose to settle there. In 1918 Hugo Gramp was instrumental in the purchase of the property for Gramp & Sons and almost 100 years later the property will be home to the wines named in Hugo's honour.
Enquiries relating to advance bookings for the luxury experiences at the St Hugo Estate are welcome from 1 October 2015, with the doors opening to visitors from 1 July 2016.
An official opening will follow in September 2016 to coincide with the 131st anniversary of the Hugo Gramp's birthday.
# 'St Hugo Estate' refers to the building and not the source of grapes for St Hugo wines.
