Jacob’s Creek

In 1847, along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, Johann Gramp planted his first vineyard. His vision was to create great tasting wines that reflect the true character of the grapes and the land. 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.

Know-how 

The grapes are sourced from several wine-growing regions in southeast Australia. This enables the winegrowers to select the ideal grapes and overcome weather-related variability. 
Jacob’s Creek's philosophy involves producing fresh, contemporary elegant wines which are ready upon release, and can also be enjoyed over time with careful cellaring.  

History of Jacob’s Creek

1847
Today
1976

In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant Johann Gramp planted the first commercial vineyard in the Barossa Valley, South Australia. The chosen site was along the banks of a small natural waterway known as Jacob’s Creek. This area is now one of Australia's most renowned wine regions.

Today, the Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre, overlooking the same creek where it all began, welcomes over 150,000 international visitors every year. 

Johann’s pioneering spirit was celebrated in 1976 with the launch in Australia of the first “Jacob’s Creek” wine, a Shiraz Cabernet Malbec blend made from the 1973 vintage.
