History of Jacob’s Creek
In 1840, when William Jacob settled on a small piece of land next to an unnamed creek, he would have never dreamed that it would one day become an icon of Australian wine, known around the world. Jacob’s Creek, as it is now famously known, runs through the heart of the Barossa Valley in South Australia and is an important part of Australian heritage winemakers. A 167-year history of Gramp & Sons that first began when a Bavarian immigrant missed the taste of wine from his homeland so much, he decided to start growing grapes.
The first wine labelled “Jacob’s Creek” was released – a 1973 vintage blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, and Malbec from Padthaway. To this day we live and breathe this vision by producing wines that showcase how each grape variety expresses itself when shaped by the soil and the sun of Australia.
