THE Illustrious

George was an adventurer, a voyager, and a master of his destiny.

He left a childhood of privilege, a first-class education, and his home in England to explore the world. With Meg, he braved the voyage to Australia – those many months of wild, uncertain seas.

George battled frost, fire, storms, bushrangers, disease and more. Though these years were the most difficult of his life, his conviction never wavered. The wildness of the new colony hardened him into a man whose reputation preceded him. Kind, fair, but unwavering in protecting his family.

George didn’t just create a wine. He created a legacy. He proved that with conviction and confidence, anyone can forge a new life for themselves.
