With over 60 years of winemaking experience between them, the Jericho family are very good at what they do. Born of an idea to pass on family tradition, and crafted with just one thing in mind; the desire to bring you great wine.
Family tradition began during 1945 in South Australia’s Riverland region, with first generation grapegrowers Vic & Grace Jericho. In planting their patch in Barmera with Shiraz, Grenache, Pedro Ximenex, and Palomino, the young couple unknowingly sowed the seeds for future generations of the Jericho family to tend to the vineyards.
Grower Vic was proud of his family name, as an avid hobbyist carpenter he signed his name to everything he made. According to family lore, not even the cat or the chickens were safe from Vic’s paintbrush!
You have to be proud of something to put your name on it, and that pride in family continues today. You’ll find Vic’s hand writing on the front of our labels which we have based our brand on; we love being reminded of him every time we share a bottle.
