Overview

Established in 1862 by Hubert de Castella, St Huberts was named after the Patron Saint of the Hunt – a 7th century nobleman who turned his life around after an encounter with a magnificent stag carrying a shining cross between his antlers.

St Huberts was one of the first wineries established in the Yarra Valley and has an enviable history of producing award winning cool-climate Victorian wines. Just like the noble creature, The Stag tier of wines represents elegance, grace and esteem. Quintessentially Victorian, they are made in a classic cool climate style.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

St Huberts was originally founded in 1862 by winemaking pioneer and Swiss immigrant Charles Hubert de Castella, who helped position the region as a premium wine producing area.

By 1876 the St Huberts vineyard was over 80 hectares including 28 hectares of Hermitage (Shiraz), eight hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and four hectares of Marsanne. By the late 1800s the winery had established itself as one of the grandest wineries in the state,  winning the Emperor of Germany’s Grand Prize at the 1881 Melbourne International Exhibition, and a Grand Prix award at the 1889 Paris Exposition – both phenomenal achievements for Australian wine.

Around the Great Depression in the 1920s all vineyards in the Yarra Valley reverted to other agricultural pursuits, nonetheless St Hubert’s was one of the first to replant in 1966, championing the rejuvenation of the Valley as one of Australia’s great cool climate regions.

The St Huberts legacy continues to this day in the hands of experienced winemaker Greg Jarratt. Greg has led St Huberts since 2006, working with the vineyard and winery team to honour the high standards set at St Huberts since its inception over 150 years ago. Extending the portfolio in 2016, St Huberts released a single vineyard Blanc de Noir sparkling wine in addition to launching The Stag Shiraz and Chardonnay.
