Hundred Acre is the ultra-premium cult Napa Cabernet and Barossa Shiraz project of Jayson Woodbridge, owner, vintner and visionary of Layer Cake. His motto is clear and concise, “stand amongst the very best or not at all”; he’s spared no expense assembling two of the most most exciting wines from Napa and Barossa.

Accompanied by a team of Napa Valley’s brightest stars, Phillipe Melka consultant (to the winemaking team) and Jim Barbour vineyard manager, Woodbridge traveled the world and has managed to create the finest wines from vineyard-specific sites in the world's best growing regions. Starting with a Cabernet produced solely from Kayli Morgan, his home vineyard situated east of St. Helena, Hundred Acre wines quickly became some of the most sough-after of the ultra-premium market after high praise from big names like Robert Parker Jr.
Woodbrige took great risks and bore great costs to produce hand-crafted wine from vineyards he purchased in South Australia's Barossa Valley. Each step of the winemaking process, from hand picking the vineyards in numerous passes, hand sorting the fruit berry by berry, the forest and age of wood are carefully selected and measured.
Everything is hand crafted, hand pruned, scrutinized and aligned for his desired response. Each wine represents single estate vineyards with 100% single varietal from the Napa and Barossa Valleys: Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan Cabernet Sauvignon, Hundred Acre Ark Cabernet Sauvignon and Hundred Acre Ancient Way Shiraz.
