Jacob’s Creek™ is one of Australia’s leading global wine brands, offering quality wines with great varietal expression.  The brand was first launched in 1976 and is named after the place where Johann Gramp planted his first vines on the banks of Jacob’s Creek in 1847.  In doing so, Johann founded the Barossa Valley’s first commercial vineyard, the Gramp & Sons business and a history of winemaking innovation that dates back over 165 years.

The wines are crafted with great care, with consumers’ tastes at the forefront of the winemakers’ mind. Having earned over 7,000 medals at wine shows across the brand’s portfolio over the last 30 years, Jacob’s Creek wines are trusted by consumers for their genuine quality.
