exclusive Black Sheep events

Our Black Sheep Club members have access to exclusive behind-the-scenes winery events. Just another benefit for our favourite group of rascals and reprobates!

Black Sheep comes to you

Each year we jump the fence and come to your town, armed with new wines and treasures from the family vault to break bread and banter together. Join the Hamiltons over a lovely long meal.

See when you will find the Black Sheep in your neck of the woods!

shearing the vines 2024

Shearing The Vines is an exclusive event. A truly unique opportunity to hand harvest some of South Australia’s oldest grapes (115 years old to be exact) and to make your own wine!

Following your efforts in the vineyard, the Hamilton Family will treat you to a long lunch with delicious wine in our rustic shearing shed. 

After vintage we will produce ‘Shearers Cut 2024’ with YOUR name on the label.

Barrel to Bottle

Our Black Sheep Club members are invited behind the scenes with Hugh and Mary to explore the influences of oak. You’ll then hand bottle and label Shiraz direct from the barrel.

Pure Black Tie Dinner

The story began nearly two centuries ago when the Hamilton family planted grape vines in South Australia in 1837 and made the first wine in the colony. Pure Black is an invitation-only event and occurs in line with the release of next ‘Pure Black’ vintage.

The perfect corporate experience

Our Black Sheep Vineyard in an earlier life was called Cornucopia, due to an abundance of different fruit trees. Cornucopiacation combines education, a hands-on harvesting experience, fine dining and being part of the creation of an Amarone style Shiraz from our 111-year-old vines. It is a day of abundance, experiencing the atmosphere of vintage with your clients, company, or social group.

This annual event can be booked by corporate or social groups. It is a delightful interplay between the rustic charm of our historic vineyard and an immaculately styled lunch in our old shed.

Please call on 08 8323 8689 or email if you’re interested in working together to host private or corporate events.
