    Hugh Hamilton WinesThe Bloodline Experience

    Over 180 years ago, Hugh Hamilton’s forebear Richard landed in South Australia to start a new life as a winemaker. Formerly a tailor in England, Richard began to thread together his bloodline, planting the first grapes in the new colony to assure his future. Taste a piece of Australian wine history in ‘The Bloodline Tasting’ with our homage to Richard’s original three varietals – Grenache, Shiraz and Pedro Ximenez. Paired with delicious cheeses.
