1866 the great great uncle of Bert Salomon, Jesuit father Johann Nepomuk Hinteröcker, immigrated from the Wachau Valley in Austria to South Australia. After spending 3 years at the Seven Hills mission and winery in Clare Valley he founded  the Parish of Norwood,  Adelaide. As founding father J.N.Hinteröcker is burried in his church.

He apparently laid the foundation for an intercontinental love and fascination. The wine NORWOOD is dedicated to him, being the first in the family to lay roots downunder.
