After recently winning USA publication Wine Enthusiast’s 2021 New World Winery of the Year last week, it’s fair to say that the Henschke family know a thing or two about viticulture and fine wine.
“Our philosophy has always been to be ‘better’ rather than ‘bigger’,” says owner and chief winemaker Stephen Henschke.
“To be one of only two Australian wine brands nominated in 2021 by such a highly respected international publication was wonderful news and we’re extremely proud to be representing family-owned wineries of Australia, with strong environmental values and a passion for hand-crafted, high-quality wines from precious, historic vineyards.”
