Hugo Wines

Established in 1982, Hugo Wines is owned and operated by John Hugo and his family, producing an average of 7000 cases per year. John’s father, Colin, planted the original vineyard in 1951 in this idyllic setting, located in the foothills of the McLaren Vale wine region.

For 15 years, the cellar door was located in the much-loved shed, which is adjacent to the new purpose-built, award winning facility that Hugo Wines now occupies. With a magnificent open fire to cosy-up to in winter, visitors can enjoy a tasting while surveying the picturesque vineyards from which the quality fruit is sourced.

While taking in the magnificent panoramic views sweeping all the way from the hills to the coastline, visitors can also taste the award winning extra-virgin olive oil that is grown on the estate, as well as appreciating the local artwork on display.


2012 Hugo Shiraz

One hundred per cent estate grown. Violet-ruby accents in colour with a bouquet of blackberry and blood plum esters, over suggestions of dark chocolate, vanilla bean and white pepper. The palate has an explosion of plump brambleberry and small stone fruits, with elegant influences of spice, fennel and toasty oak. The delicate balance is maintained by crisp acid and silky tannins.

2013 Hugo Chardonnay

Clear, lemon-straw with bright highlights. Clean, intense with notes of white peach, melon and honeysuckle, and well-integrated floral oak components. Dry, medium- bodied with fruit flavours of citrus, peach and mango, with floral notes of honey and spices. One hundred per cent barrel-fermented French oak, revealing a unique creaminess and length of palate.
