19 Crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 Crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This punishment by "transportation" began in 1788, and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaits. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick.

Our Hard Chard honors the brave contributions of the women banished to Australia with the bold expression of Chardonnay we would make.
