Henschke is located in the Eden Valley in South Australia and is a remarkable vineyard steeped in history. Johann Christian Henschke settled on the farm over 165 years ago and began producing wine on the rich, red, brown earth. Stephen and Prue, a husband and wife team and the fifth generation, now manage the estate and produce one of the best Australian single vineyard Shiraz, Hill of Grace.
A unique, delineated, historic vineyard that lies opposite an old Lutheran church, which is named after a region in Silesia called Gnadenberg, meaning Hill of Grace. With vines dating back to 1860 and biodynamic vineyard management, Stephen and Prue are producing wines of intense colour and flavour.
Recently, Hill of Grace 2012 was awarded ‘Wine of the Year’ and ‘Best Shiraz’ by distinguished Australian wine critic James Halliday.
