Jacob’s Creek Wine and Development

Jacob’s Creek is a name that is linked with wine. They've been making great wines for many years, and they just keep getting better! In reality you can trace the origins of their wine all of the way back to 1837!

A fellow called Johann Gramp planted the first grape vine in the city of Jacob’s Creek, and from this spawned the multi million buck wine company that is Jacob’s Creek. Over time Johann bought more land, increasing the amount of grapes they could grow.

In 1872 Johann passed down the vineyards to his child Gustav, but it was not until 1912 the family registered their first firm name – G. Gramp & Sons. They produced wine under this name till 1976 when the 1st wine to bear the Jacob’s Creek brand was created. This wine was a vintage mix Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Since that point there have been many wines to come out wearing the Jacob’s Creek label, and in 1984 the company made a decision to take it’s wine outside of Australia and start selling in the UK. After this proved to be a big hit, the company started exporting to Nations across the world.

Fast forward to today, and Jacob’s Creek remains one of the forerunners of the wine industry, not just with the wine they produce, but also the tourism they bring to Australia. In 2011 they won the Qantas Australia Tourism Awards for Best Tourism Restaurant and Best Tourism Winery.

Of the current crop of wines produced by Jacobs Creek, the Jacobs Creek Pinot Noir Vintage 2013 is a good drop. It has a great robust taste and is a great wine to sample of the Jacob’s Stream range. So if you're new to wine, and are needing to sample some of the finest wine internationally , you’d better get down to the local bottle shop and look at all the wonderful wines Jacob’s Creek has to offer!
