The St Huberts of today has a rich 19th century history, not least in its success at the 1881 Melbourne International Exhibition, which featured every type of agricultural and industrial product. The wine section alone attracted 711 entries. The Emperor of Germany offered a Grand Prize, a silver gilt epergne, for the most meritorious exhibit in the show. A St Huberts wine won the wine section, then competed against objects as diverse as felt hats and steam engines to wine the Emperor?s Prize, featured on its label for decades thereafter. Like other Yarra Valley wineries, it dropped from sight at the start of the 20th century, was reborn in 1966, and after several changes of ownership, became part of what today is TWE. The wines are made at Coldstream Hills, but have their own, very different, focus. St Huberts is dominated by Cabernet and the single vineyard Roussanne. Its grapes come from warmer sites, particularly the valley floor, that are part owned and part under contract. Oak use, too, is different, albeit 100% French.
