“In 1981 Richard and Jette purchased the Leconfield winery and vineyards in Coonawarra that had been established by Richard’s uncle, Sydney Hamilton in 1974. The purchase of Leconfield complemented their McLaren Vale operations and enabled the business access to high quality fruit from two of the premium wine growing regions of Australia, since then additional vineyards have been planted and the winemaking facilities expanded and improved.
