St Huberts has played a long and distinguished role in the history of Victoria’s premier Yarra Valley wine region. Originally established in 1862 by winemaking pioneer Hubert de Castella, the St Huberts estate vineyard has long been considered one of the finest spots in the valley for Cabernet Sauvignon.
Hubert De Castella named St Huberts not after himself, but after Saint Hubert – the patron saint of the hunt, whose divine intervention with a Stag is now depicted in the St Huberts logo.
By the late 1800s St Huberts was one of the colony’s grandest wineries.
During the Great Depression of the 1930s, the vineyards in the Yarra Valley reverted to grazing.
In 1966 St Huberts was re-established by Tom Cester and the estate vineyard was the first to be replanted in the Yarra Valley when it was rejuvenated as a wine region.
The St Huberts’ tradition of producing world acclaimed wines continues to this day under the leadership of winemaker Greg Jarratt, whose outstanding, cellar-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon, and exemplary Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are known for their complexity and soft, ripe flavours. Worth exploring too, is the limited release estate grown Roussanne.
