A popular success
In 1837, during the colonisation of south Australia, William Light, a British colonel responsible for carrying out topographical surveys, set out to explore the north-east of the territory. He discovered a valley which he named the Barossa Valley, after a famous English naval victory at Barossa in the south of Spain. In memory of his assistant, William Jacob, he also named a nearby creek "Jacob's Creek".
In 1844, a German immigrant, Johann Gramp, purchased a plot of land in Barossa Valley close to the banks of Jacob's Creek A year later, he planted the region's first commercial vineyard here. Three years after that, Johann Gramp obtained his first vintage: a white wine from the Riesling family.
In 1976, a Shiraz Cabernet Malbec cru dated 1973 was called "Jacob's Creek" in homage to Johann Gramp's first vintage. Building on this first success, the company launched new varieties in the following years. This time, they were made from Riesling or Chardonnay grape varieties.
In 1994, Jacob's Creek won the much-coveted Maurice O'Shea Award, in recognition of the brand's enormous contribution to the Australian winegrowing industry. This was the first time the award had gone to a wine rather than a person.
In 2000, the introduction of the Reserve range heralded a new era for Jacob's Creek. Since then the brand has offered high quality wines at a premium price.
