Overview

Overview

Hubert de Castella's passion for the Yarra Valley saw him establish St Huberts in 1862. By the late 1800s it had grown to be the largest estate in the area. The wines enjoyed immediate and on-going success at wine shows both domestically and abroad. The onset of the Great Depression, the increasing popularity of fortified wine and the emerging profitability of dairy farming saw the vineyard revert to grazing in the 1920s. It wasn't until the 1960s that the Yarra Valley again rose to prominence as a wine region and St Huberts was once again one of the pioneers.

After the success and cult following achieved by our St Huberts The Stag range, we decided to bring this bright and crisp Rosé as a special bottling to celebrate our partnership with the Australian Open.

Heathcote, Victoria

Rocketing to fame for Shiraz borne from its long band of red volcanic soil winding up to Mount Camel, Heathcote’s naturally fertile, rust coloured Cambrian earth is over 100 million years old. The result is deeply coloured, seductive wines.

Greg Jarratt - Winemaker

Greg is a natural DIYer who relishes the challenge of making things. Whether it involves soldering jewellery, or making award-winning St Huberts Cabernet, Greg is very creative and hands on.
Following a Bachelor of Applied Science in Wine at Charles Sturt University and vintage work around Australia and in Bordeaux, Greg was appointed Assistant Winemaker and Cellar Hand at Coldstream Hills in the Yarra Valley in 1995. During his three-year tenure, Greg went back to Bordeaux in 1996 and then Languedoc-Roussillon working for La Perouse wines in 1997. In 1998, he moved to the Hunter Valley and made wines for Lindeman’s, Tulloch and Hungerford Hill. Nonetheless he had developed a taste for the Yarra Valley, so in 2001 Greg returned to Coldstream Hills and in 2006 was appointed Winemaker of St Huberts. Greg is a Len Evans Tutorial scholar, and has been an Associate Judge and Judge at wine shows including the Canberra National Wine Show and the Royal Sydney & Melbourne Wine Shows.
