A courageous few willingly journeyed by sea from London to the far side of the world in 1886. Among them, a doctor, on this treacherous journey with hope for a better life.
Instead, they arrived at Port Misery, South Australia… a dark swamp, like nothing they’d ever imagined. A place of lawlessness, low morals and high vice, far from the promising new beginnings they sought.
At that moment they thought, if hope had brought them here, to this dismal place, surely this was ‘Hopes End’. And so it was named.
came new beginnings…
…and for the doctor, the extraordinary idea to make a different kind of tonic, Australian Red Blend wine.
FROM THE LAND, VINES.
FROM THE GRAPES, WINE.
FROM PURITY, PASSION.
FROM VIRTUE, VICE.
In that moment they decided to stop hoping for a better tomorrow, and instead to live for the day.
THE FUN BEGAN…
It ends with the darkness and depth of our ripe red fruit and our deliciously indulgent taste. Notes of Forest fruit jam, vanilla with subtle oak, a hint of chocolate and a velvety, smooth finish.
We drink this Australan Red Blend Wine to each day that begins in hope with the virtue of our daylight endeavours, but which ends with the vice of your pleasures in the darkness and the adventure of tonight.
Brandy Barrel Aged Cabernet
A unique and intriguing wine. Time spent acquiring the flavour and character from barrels previously used to mature Australia’s most awarded brandy has led to notes of blackberry, vanilla and chocolate interwoven in an indulgent mix of blueberry pie, truffles and spicy overtones from the barrels and their previous occupant.
Hopes End celebrates the courage of those willing to go on a voyage of uncertainty.
Hopes End encourages the embracing of the unknown
Hopes End cherishes the liberation and possibility of adventure
Hopes End is named for the place where our story and our wine began, South Australia 1886
because while everything begins with hope, who knows what we will find at Hopes End
