This wine was named after the site known as ‘Centenary Hill’ where in 1947 Fred Gramp planted a Moreton Bay Fig tree overlooking the Orlando winery to commemorate 100 years since his grandfather Johann Gramp planted his first vines on the banks of Jacob’s Creek.

In 1847, along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, Johann Gramp planted his first vineyard. His vision was to create great tasting wines that reflect the true character of the grapes and the land. To this day we live and breathe this vision by producing wines that showcase how each grape variety expresses itself when shaped by the soil and the sun of Australia.
