Simon Hackett

Simon Hackett was born and raised in the Barossa Valley where his family have been connected with the wine trade for many generations. His great uncle attended Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1860 and later his father graduated from the inaugural Oenology course from the same college in 1938. Today Simon’s winery is situated at the entrance to the McLaren Vale in Budgen Road and it is here that he hand crafts his wines in small open top fermenters, gently nurturing them in a combination of French and American oak barriques. Simon has never been afraid to tackle less common varietals and much of his fruit is sourced from dry grown vineyards with ancient gnarled old vines. His refreshingly citrus Semillon is a real eye opener whilst his Old Vine Grenache is one of the most delicious we’ve ever tasted, although obviously we are biased! Yields are often very small and his entire annual production rarely exceeds ten thousand cases.

South Australia

The McLaren Vale is predominately a red wine region, producing some of the best red wines in South Australia. Vineyards were first planted in the mid 1800s. One of the early pioneers Thomas Hardy established a business that evolved to BRL Hardy, one of the largest wine companies in the country. The region also has a healthy number of boutique wineries that consistently make fine wines and experiment with different wine styles. The climate is warm to hot with dry summers, and benefits from cooling breezes from the St Vincent Gulf. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz (rich, ripe & generous), Cabernet Sauvignon; White – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc.
