St Hugo was launched to honour Hugo Gramp, the grandson of Johann Gramp who planted his first vines in the Barossa Valley in 1847. He took extreme pride in his craft, and with his drive for on-going quality improvements, Hugo quickly built the company into a pillar of the Australian wine industry. Every bottle of St Hugo is an acknowledgement of Hugo Gramp’s unwavering pursuit of the highest quality wines and his winemaking philosophies that are still respected by winemakers to this day.

Released from our cellar for yours. Handcrafted using only the finest Barossa Valley and Coonawarra fruit, the St Hugo Cellar collection is a tribute to our winemaking legacy. Chief Winemaker Dan Swincer has carefully selected blocks from South Australia’s finest wine regions, crafted in small batches and matured in our cellar for extended bottle maturation prior to release to ensure the wine is well integrated. These fine Australian red wines are lauded for their depth, intensity and ability to age gracefully. One to keep in the cellar for a special occasion.
The Latin words “Vetus” and “Purum” that Hugo chose to adorn the crest reflect his belief that fine wine starts with terroir and in the vineyards. “Vetus” means ancient and refers to ancient soils and vines of the Barossa Valley – the oldest in the world. “Purum”, meaning purity, is in reference to the purity of one of the most remote and unadulterated wine regions on earth – the Coonawarra.
