Richard Hamilton Wines celebrated the launch of its new Rosette Series wines with a very fine Rose Garden Soiree on Saturday 6th November. The garden was alive with stunning roses, good food and wine, games, live music and even a thunderstorm or two.
Launch of Rosette Series Richard and Chris Hamilton launched the Rosette Series of wines, with the design of their Rosette Series wine label based on the beautiful roses much in evidence at Richard Hamilton Wines. There is a proud family tradition in winemaking dating all the way back to the establishment of South Australia's first vineyard and winery in 1837. Leconfield & Richard Hamilton Wines' owners are proud of their family's winemaking and viticulture heritage and are passionate about working with their winemaking team to ensure the company continues to produce premium quality wines that are in demand around the world.
