Henschke is regarded as one of Australia’s most prominent wine producers. In 1841, Johann Christian Henschke emigrated from Silesia, settling in South Australia. He purchased land in 1862 in Keyneton within the Eden Valley, planting vines, which later became the home of Henschke wines. The first vintage was produced in 1868, amounting to over 1,000 litres. In 1891, Paul, Johann Christian’s son, purchased the vineyard, which would later be known as the Hill of Grace vineyard. Fast forward 60 years, to when Henschke decided to change focus from fortified to table wines, due to the changing tastes of Australian drinkers. The year 1958 saw Cyril Henschke create the first vintage of Hill of Grace, Henschke’s iconic Shiraz, from low-yielding vines planted in the 1860s. The Henschke family is now up to its sixth generation of winemakers, fifth generation winemaker Stephen Henschke has been responsible for introducing many improvements to the winery, due to working vintages overseas. Johann, Stephen’s son, now also works at Henschke as a winemaker, along with his wife, Angela, a Henschke ambassador.

The range of wines available from Henschke is immense, with vineyards in the Barossa, Eden Valleys and the Adelaide Hills. Whilst Shiraz remains a core focus, Henschke also offer wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Riesling, Chardonnay and many others, at a range of price points, from budget to luxury. At the lower end are delicate wines such as Tillys Vineyard Dry White, a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, and the Croft Chardonnay. The real stars of the show are the reds, such as the Mount Edelstone Shiraz, a vibrant, spicy wine, and of course the Hill of Grace, named after the German region of Gnadenberg. The Hill of Grace vineyard is farmed biodynamically, with compost, cow manure and egg shells that help to enrich the soil. The wine has consistently gained near-perfect scores due to its aromas, depth and length.

South Australia

A behemoth of a state, South Australia is responsible for over 50% of Australia's wine production. With the first known planting here taking place in 1836, local vintners have had time to truly perfect their art. In fact, SA is also home to some of the oldest Shiraz vines on the planet, with around 38% of SA’s old vines being Shiraz.

Such a large area means that the terrain, climate and soil profiles vary immensely between regions, allowing for a vast array of varieties to thrive. Some of South Australia's premier wine regions include; Barossa Valley, Mclaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and the Adelaide hills. Such a collection of prime wine regions has earned South Australia the grand title of Australia’s Wine Capital. But it doesn’t stop there, the prowess of SA wine producers mixed with fantastic growing conditions has garnered the state the privilege of being dubbed one of the 9 Great Wine Capitals of the World.

Towards the end of the 19th century, Europe was ravaged by an outbreak of Phylloxera, an aphid that injects a venom into the root of the vine while sucking out sap. The effect of the outbreak vastly influenced the global market. For example, France’s wine output decreased by over 40%, with the whole ordeal costing the country over 10 billion francs. Luckily for all, the grand ‘down-under’ remained a wine wonder, as the blight couldn’t take flight and reach the far away lands.
