In 1878, Dorset born Henry Pike, emigrated to South Australia aboard the HMS Oakland. He settled in the small town of Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills and in 1886 established the family business ‘Pikes Dorset Brewery’. From the outset, Henry Pike used the striking English Pike fish on all his labels and this has been continued as a tradition on all current products.
Now called Pikes Wines, the company has a long history in premium beverages, spanning over 120 years. The first Pikes wines were released in the Spring of 1985 and have since been making and marketing a range of premium table wines which reflect the region, the vintage season and the varieties grown.
