Galway Pipe is named after Governor Sir Henry Galway, Governor of South Australia between 1914-1920.
Governor Galway was a frequent visitor to the winery and on each visit he would conduct a tasting of the finest ‘pipes’ (500Ltr barrels) of port. Whichever pipe was most to his liking was inscribed as ‘Galway’s Pipe’ and that particular blend was used exclusively at Government House.
