Chris Hemsworth visits Jacob’s Creek winery in Barossa

Hollywood actor Chris Hemsworth paid a visit to the Barossa Valley this week, joining the team at Pernod Ricard’s Jacob’s Creek winery as part of his role as an ambassador of the producer’s Double Barrel range.

Jacob’s Creek chief winemaker Ben Bryant hosted Chris at the winery, taking him on a tour of the vineyards and barrel room, tasting wines directly from the barrel, blending wine, and coopering
the all-important barrels.

“Chris really has a passion for Aussie wine and was keen to meet the team behind creating Jacob’s Creek. We brought together those involved in growing the grapes and making the barrels alongside our winemakers to spend time having a chat over a harvest barbecue at our historic Jacob’s Creek Estate,” he said.

During his first visit to the Barossa, South Australia, Chris, who has starred in Thor, The Avengers and 12 Strong, spent a few days getting to know the Jacob’s Creek winemaking team and the region that is home to its winery, experiencing the process behind making its Double Barrel wines – a range that includes a Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz Cabernet aged in barrel but finished in aged ex-whiskey barrels for a “richer, deeper and smoother finish”.

Chris recently provided his vocal talents for the new Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel ‘Two Barrels, One Soul’ commercial, which was released in late 2017.

“We’ve been warmly welcomed in the Barossa by the Jacob’s Creek team who have taken us into their home and shown us what makes this place and its wines world class,” he said. “As someone who travels a lot I’m always looking for things that can remind me of home and a glass of Double Barrel does just that.”
