One of Australia’s oldest family-owned wineries, Henschke, was last night awarded 2021 Halliday Wine Companion ‘Winery of the Year’.
The awards, presented by Vintage Cellars, were broadcast online for the first time, hosted by former ABC broadcaster Jon Faine and James Halliday AM.
The awards acknowledge the best of the best from across the wine industry and celebrate the release of the 2021 edition of the Halliday Wine Companion.
Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke, and his viticulturist wife Prue, are recognised around the world for their exceptional quality wines, innovation and sustainability in the vineyard.
The winery is a true family affair, and recently Stephen and Prue have welcomed sixth-generation family members, Johann, Justine and Andreas, into the family business.
Stephen said that the award is a great honour.
“We are overjoyed to share this award with our fantastic, loyal and hardworking staff.
“As we reflect on our own journey as Henschke custodians, we pay tribute to the trailblazers who laid the foundations for our Henschke story,” he said.
Henschke is located at 1428 Keyneton Road.
