Over the past 175 years the Hamilton family have developed Leconfield and Richard Hamilton Wines into the iconic brands they are today.

Inspired by his viticulturist father Burton, Richard Hamilton, fifth generation wine grower, established his own winery and vineyards at McLaren Vale in 1972.

Since then, Richard and his wife Jette have built up their vineyard holdings, some of which are in excess of 100 years old. These holdings are comprised not only of Burton’s McLaren Vale vineyards but also his Uncle Sydney’s winery and vineyards in Coonawarra.
