According to reports Bill purchased the Glen Ewin Estate, A South Australian icon that been around almost 170 in the 90s after it practically became derelict.

The Estate began with horticulturist George McEwin, creator of the famous Glen Ewin Jam label. Production continued on the Estate for many years until the brand was bought by IXL back in the 80s.

How was Glem Ewin Estate built?

In 1843 Horticulturist George McEwin took up the land upon which the house and buildings of Glen Ewin Estate now stand, and began planting fruit trees and vines.

Glen Ewin was one of the earliest vineyards in South Australia with the first vines of Frontignac, Black Hambro and Roussillon planted in about 1845. However in 1891 wine-making ceased due to George McEwin’s religious concerns regarding the morality of the enterprise and, thereafter, effort was concentrated on the product for which the property became best known – Glen Ewin Jams.
