About
Hugh Hamilton and his daughter Mary are the 5th and 6th generation of the Australian Hamilton wine dynasty that stretches back over 180 years. Beginning in 1837, Hugh’s great great Grandfather Richard emigrated to the new colony of South Australia and planted Australia’s first wine grapes, unwittingly starting an industry that South Australia is now world famous for. Every element of this winery, from our Cellar Door experiences to our exciting Wine Club, the Black Sheep Club, is designed by the family themselves to be of an outstanding quality.

This was by far our favourite winery in McLaren Vale. The wines were exceptional but it was the experience and professionalism of the staff there that makes this experience so good. From the moment we sat down to take in the beautiful view our wine tasting journey did not disappoint. It was so easy to join their wine club as the wines are of exceptional standard. Would definitely put this on your list as a vineyard to visit.

We recently visited and had the wine and chocolate tasting. We fell in love with the views as well as the wines. Excellent service and delicious chocolates with the Shiraz wines. We had the opportunity to have a mocktail (absolutely delicious and I’m in the process of ordering some for home) prior to tasting and this was delightful. Don’t give this place a miss, the views on top of lovely wine were the highlight of the weekend.

After reading all the positive reviews of this place, I finally got to visit Hugh Hamilton Wines at McLaren Vale and my expectations were truly exceeded. Stunning views, beautiful cellar door, and amazing wines. Also, the staff are fantastic and very customer focused. In terms of wines, I am a fan of the Dark Arts series and I'm sure there is something for everyone's taste at Hugh Hamilton. I had a great time at the cellar door though I am hoping that some options for nibbles (other than almonds) can be offered alongside the awesome wines.

Our favourite winery of the region.
We like a solid Shiraz, and we enjoyed every red HHW produced. It was a matter of picking a favourite. We enjoyed both the premium bottles and the more day to day offerings.
The tasting was customised and off formula to suit our request for a red tasting.
The staff were very attentive and knowledgable.
We did originally have concerns on seeing the very modern branding, but tradition out-shone on seeing the winery, tasting the wines, and hearing the background of Hugh himself, it all just fell into place.
DEFINITELY WORTH A STOP! We happily spent $700 here on lots of well priced wines, happily joined the black sheep club and happily will return.
Highly recommend.

We had the most fantastic time doing the wine and chocolate pairing. The experience was made even better by our host Zac who was so knowledgeable and took it from just a tasting to an experience.

Amazing setting but underwhelmed by the experience. After a really positive start, where we were given three glasses together and told we might go a little “off menu”, our server then changed and the experience totally changed. We were largely ignored, served one very small tasting glass between 2 of us, and watched other groups around us trying different big red varieties - none of which were on the standard tasting menu. The experience for those groups looked amazing, but we left pretty disheartened and without trying the wines we were really interested in.

Hello, I really appreciate your feedback on your tasting experience. I am so sorry to hear you had an underwhelming experience with us. This is certainly not the service we are striving for. We would like to be able to discuss this further and learn more about what happened on the day to help us improve for the future. Could you please email our Cellar Door Manager Zak directly zak@hughhamiltonwines.com.au Thank you - Annie HHW
