The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Regarded as the best medium-sized red wine producer in Australia, Henschke has gone from strength to strength over the past three decades under the guidance of winemaker Stephen and viticulturist Prue Henschke. The red wines fully capitalise on the very old, low-yielding, high quality vines and are superbly made with sensitive but positive use of new small oak: Hill of Grace is second only to Penfolds Grange as Australia's red wine icon. A founding member of Australia's First Families of Wine. 2012 Hill of Grace is Wine of the Year in the 2018 Wine Companion. Exports to all major markets.

The Henschke family has been making wine since 1868. Fifth generation, Stephen and his wife Prue are well recognised for high quality wines, innovation and sustainability in the vineyard, as well as their role as custodians of the land.
They are passionate in upholding the family name, origins and reputation - ensuing that the vineyards are their legacy for future generations - particularly their children Johann, Justine and Andreas, who are set to be the sixth generations of Henschke in wine.
