The winery takes its name from Jamsheed, a Persian king who used to store fresh grapes in jars over winter where they would inevitably spontaneously ferment and be set aside as ‘poison’.
One of King Jamsheed’s harem, despairing of frequent migraines, chose to commit suicide by drinking from a poisoned jar. She woke to find herself miraculously cured, informed her king who was most pleased and set about making many jars of ‘poison’ or wine.
Gary Mills, the winemaker behind Jamsheed, began his wine career in the vineyards of Margaret River. A five week vintage posting at Ridge Vineyards in California turned into a 2 year full-time position under the tutelage of winemaker Paul Draper. From there, Gary went on to work in Oregon and various other regions in Australia.
