St Hugo

Born to a family whose very name is rooted in Australian wine history, Hugo Gramp lived and worked his entire life in the Barossa Valley. Hugo’s grandfather, Johann Gramp, planted his first vines in 1847, and started the wine business that would later be called Gramp & Sons.

With an entrepreneurial spirit and a quest for excellence, Gramp was the inspiration behind the new additions to the St Hugo range, including exceptional red wines from his beloved home in the Barossa Valley. Today, St Hugo wines are prized by wine collectors and connoissures for their profound depth, intensity and complexity.

At just 25 years of age, Gramp was appointed managing director of Gramp & Sons. On October 25th 1938, he was flying from Adelaide to Melbourne when the Kyeema plane he was travelling on crashed into Mount Dandenong, taking the lives of all 18 passengers on board.

In 1983, Gramp’s legacy was honoured with the release of the first St Hugo wine. Crafted from the outstanding 1980 vintage, the St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon was hailed for its power and elegance. Today, more than 30 vintages on, St Hugo continues to set the benchmark for excellence in Australian cabernet sauvignon.

In 2016, a new milestone was marked with the opening of the home of St Hugo. Visitors can experience the enterprising spirit of Hugo Gramp in the beautifully restored ironstone building, which features a private tasting area, fine-dining restaurant and luxurious wine lounge.

Recognised for its award-winning 2010 Vetus Purum Cabernet Sauvignon and 2013 Barossa Shiraz, St Hugo offers an incredible experience not to be missed. Its premium collection of Australian red wines are prized for their power, elegance and excellence.



St Hugo 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

The St Hugo 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon delicately balances sweet fruit and fine tannins. Bright dark-berry flavours give the wine depth and generosity, with dusty tannins holding it together. Oak adds lovely char and spice elements to this wine, which is full of power and elegance.

St Hugo 2013 Barossa Shiraz

Rich and fresh flavour expresses the intensity of the St Hugo 2013 Barossa Shiraz vintage. Elegant, fine tannins are felt across the palate, while a subtle oak influence yields cedar and soft charry notes on the finish. The wine is beautifully balanced with excellent structure and length, which is typical of the St Hugo heritage.

St Hugo 2010 Vetus Purum Cabernet Sauvignon

A wine of character and distinction, the St Hugo 2010 Vetus Purum Cabernet Sauvignon is intense and multifaceted. Notes of blackcurrant and cedar are interwoven into a sophisticated expression that constantly intrigues.

St Hugo 2010 Vetus Purum Barossa Shiraz

Deep ruby red, this medium- to full- bodied wine shows extraordinary complexity and texture. Notes of plum, spice and cloves are integrated with hints of chocolate and vanilla, and supported by fine tannins. Cellar this wine for the next ten years and beyond, and it will reveal additional layers of complexity.
