Jacob's Creek is a story of people, passion and place.
Jacob's Creek - History
The 167-year history of Gramp & Sons first began when a Bavarian immigrant missed the taste of wine from his homeland so much, he decided to start growing wine in Australia. 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.
