Born from a love of wine, a taste for quality and friendly sibling rivalry, Golden Child Wines is a collaboration between grape grower David Hamilton and winemaker son James. Hand-picked to optimise quality and fermented using natural yeasts, our wines are vegan friendly and are bottled unfiltered with minimal additives.


David Hamilton bought grazing land in 1997 and established the family vineyard. Located in the Kuitpo sub-region of the Southern Adelaide Hills, the property still has all its original plantings. The elevation (330m-380m) and close proximity to the coast (15km) make it ideal for growing premium cool climate grapes. In addition to providing son James with fruit for Golden Child, David has supplied grapes for almost twenty years to some of South Australia’s best known wineries. James has extensive winemaking experience, having worked in Australia and California over the past twelve years.
