THE STORY OF 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.
Meet our extraordinary team, our winemakers. From vine to glass, these are the people whose dedication to craft and place can be tasted in every bottle of Jacob’s Creek.
Our home is built along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, which still flows through the heart of the Barossa Valley to this day. From here, our vineyards stretch from the Barossa to Adelaide Hills to the Coonawarra, producing wine that’s inspired by the Australian wine regions they’re grown in. Learn about our regions, and how we’re taking care to protect and preserve the environment we operate in.
The story of Jacob’s Creek is a story of people, places and passion. A 167-year history of Gramp & Sons that first began when a Bavarian immigrant missed the taste of wine from his homeland so much, he decided to start growing grapes. Discover our passion for winemaking and our journey to becoming one of Australia’s best wine producers.
