Henschke

South Australia | Eden Valley

James' Review

Regarded as the best medium-sized red wine producer in Australia, Henschke has gone from strength to strength 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. Exports to all major markets.

About

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.

Cellar Door

Information

The Henschkes opened their new cellar door, housed in the original 1860s Grain Barn, in late 2018 to mark the winery’s 150th anniversary. The new cellar door includes a spacious tasting area, courtyard, underground cellar, private tasting room and the Henschke Wine Room, which displays the full Henschke collection. Guests are able taste through the selection of wines on offer for the day, or opt for the paid shiraz or cabernet tasting flight, featuring Mount Edelstone Shiraz and Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon. Tastings of Hill of Grace Shiraz are reserved for the VIP Tour and Tasting.
