Hugh Hamilton

Isabel Estate, Marlborough, New Zealand

Hugh Hamilton and his daughter Mary Hamilton are the 5th and 6th 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 is now the CEO of the family winery and brings insight, energy and enormous talent to this exciting winery.

Every element of this winery, from our Cellar Door experiences and our friendly and passionate staff to our exciting Wine Club, the Black Sheep Club, and our premium range of eclectic wines is designed by the family themselves to be of an outstanding quality.
