Luxury wine escape at Home of St Hugo, Barossa Valley

This winter, St Hugo in the Barossa Valley is inviting guests to enter the world of one of Australia’s most distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon producers.

Visitors will indulge in an exclusive, seamlessly blended experience with bespoke wine tastings, intimate fine-dining, and unique invitation-only experiences.

On arrival, guests will travel through an avenue of aged cork trees, before reaching a sophisticated wine lounge, complete with 170-year-old stone walls, where they can savour specially crafted St Hugo wines by the open fire place.

There is no better place to become immersed in the legacy of Hugo Gramp and the captivating wines that carry his name, than through the impeccable food that reflects the best of local Barossa produce.

Taking the wine escape to the next level, the on-site fine-dining restaurant helmed by acclaimed local chef Mark McNamara offers an indulgent four- and eight-course degustation menus.

Accompanying the wine lounge and restaurant, the private underground tasting room and atmospheric back vintage bottle cellar enable an exclusive exploration of St Hugo’s flagship wines, showcasing Australian winemaking at its finest.

The unique experience also includes specially crafted wine flights, a tour of the home, and even naming one’s own vine row in the St Hugo vineyard.

Various luxury one-day or weekend packages are available to explore St Hugo and its Barossa home, such as the ‘Fine Wine Experience’, which offers the opportunity to make your own bespoke St Hugo wine blend and have it kept in the St Hugo vault.

Since opening its doors late last year, this destination has already been named Barossa Valley’s Cellar Door with the Best Food in the Gourmet Traveller 2016 Restaurant Awards and is currently shortlisted in the 2017 Australian Interior Design Awards.
