About the DR x St Hugo Collaboration

The DR3 x St Hugo collaboration started with Ricciardo’s passion for wine and has led to a long-term collaboration with St Hugo Chief Winemaker, Peter Munro, where DR has been involved every step of the way; from the blending, to the label design, tasting notes, and providing his racing boot to be modelled into a limited edition decanter…

“I grew up around wine, it’s in my blood. Along with my Italian heritage and my family’s love of sharing wine, my Dad is a bit of a hobby winemaker and I have been surrounded by the passion for wine since I was young.  I’m quite a curious kid, I always love learning things, and wine is a true craft, and I want to get in and get my hands dirty and make really spectacular wine that provides a unique perspective on what fine wine is.”

- Daniel Ricciardo

About St Hugo

St Hugo is synonymous with exceptional quality, and we're not the only ones who think so - with every vintage honoured with Gold medals since 1980. The quality of our wines speak for themselves when poured in your glass.

St Hugo has built a legacy crafting fine wines from two of Australia's critically acclaimed winemaking regions; the Barossa and Coonawarra. Both of these individually unique sites have earned reputations for producing some of the world's finest wines and we are renowned for consistently producing this definitive wine style. The St Hugo house style is about crafting wines with a balance of both power and elegance.

About Our Winemaker

Appointed to the prestigious role of Chief Winemaker in 2019 and with more than 20 years of winemaking experience, Peter Munro has taken up the mantle of continuing the Gramp family legacy. He has honed his craft in some of the world's most prominent wine regions including the Barossa Valley, Hawke's Bay and Napa Valley. 

"My passion is to create outstanding fine wines that excite the palate, wines to be enjoyed and interpreted over time. A good wine should be an imaginative and poetic reflection of its origin.“

It is Peter's experience and love of wine that shines through with each new vintage of St. Hugo, and we hope you love drinking them as much as he loves making them.
