Jacob’s Creek – Fine wines from the Barossa Valley in South Australia
William Jacob his brother John took up land in the Hundred of Moorooroo, which is derived from an aboriginal word meaning ‘meeting of two waters’ - the North Para River and the creek called ‘Cowieaurita’ meaning “yellow-brown water”, the colour produced from the iron laden soil. The creek was later renamed Jacob’s Creek after William Jacob.
Jacob's Creek's fresh, easy drinking style and excellent quality has been extremely popular in both Australia, and around the world.
