JJ Hahn

Maria and Johann Christian Hahn arrived in the Barossa Valley in 1845, and like many early Barossa settlers were of Silesian-German descent.  Early settlers staked out the best of the valley’s farmland, and Maria and Johann chose a premium block for their vineyard.

Remarkably, six generations on this land holding is still in Hahn family hands. The history does not stop there as the current custodians, Jacqui and James Hahn still live in the original homestead constructed from 1846 to 1848.

The JJ Hahn brand was created in 1997 as a joint venture between this sixth generation Hahn custodian couple (Jacqui and James Hahn) and renowned winemaker Rolf Binder.  Today Rolf is co-owner and has retained the management of the vineyard and the wine making.  Wines are only made during the best vintages, giving the JJ Hahn label a well-deserved reputation for quality as well as excellent value for money.

The partnership of Rolf Binder/Veritas wines and the Hahn family aims to recognise the heritage status of this family, the ancient vines and their unique part of the Barossa Valley’s history.
