|Winery Name:||Jamiesons Run, Australia
|Winemaker(s):||Andrew Hales and Sophie Hannah|
|Other Details:||The original Jamiesons Run was a remote outback sheep station owned by the Jamiesons Brothers in the mid 1800's. Our winery, based in the heart of the famous Coonawarra region was named Jamiesons Run as a tribute to our pioneering past.
Two men separated by time and distance laid the foundations for Jamiesons Run's creation - first was Alfred Deakin (Australia's second prime minister) with the assistance of Canadian irrigation experts William and George Chaffey (Chaffey brothers), second was John Riddoch.
John Riddoch, a Scottish émigré, established the Coonawarra Fruit Colony and planted the first vines in the Coonawarra area in 1890. The Undoolya Block vineyard contains hundred-year-old vines that date back from Riddoch's time, and is located close to where the Jamiesons Run winery is today.
Riddoch discovered the region's brick red coloured soil that was to become known as Terra Rossa - Australia's most famous wine-growing soil.
Jamiesons Run's connection with Coonawarra started in 1953 (as Mildara Wines) under the guidance of director Ron Haselgrove, who purchased what turned out to be some of the most sought after parcels of Terra Rossa soil in Coonawarra.
