Visited Hugh Hamilton today with a small group of young friends. From the venue, the view, the wines and the friendly and engaging service from Carolyn and Rebecca it was a fabulous experience! Can't wait to return with other friends and visitors. Thanks!

Great wine tsting experience presented by Kath as she guided us through their range of excellent red wines. We are partial to heavy reds and they have several that met expectations. If you like heavy reds then The Oddball, Saperavi is worth a buy.

Hugh Hamilton’s cellar door is one of the highlights in McLaren Vale. The building itself has the most amazing views, breath-takingly displayed by its theatre-in-the-round set, built atop an old water tank. Hugh Hamilton is a winemaker with a quirky sense of humour that is...More
