The Henschke family have been making wine at their estate in the Eden Valley since 1868. Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke took over running the winery in 1979. Together with his viticulturist wife Prue, they have taken their two single vineyards, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone, and transformed them into two of Australia’s most sought-after wines. Through a combination of great viticulture from Prue, who is at the forefront of re-introducing native plants into their vineyards to improve biodiversity, and winemaking from Stephen, they have built upon their inheritance and turned this traditional producer into one that is recognised by savvy wine drinkers throughout the world.
The Semillon grapes are sourced from Henschke's Eden Valley vineyard, while the Sauvignon Blanc comes from their Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Named for Stephen's great-aunt Ottilie Mathilde ‘Tilly’ Henschke, one of the many remarkable pioneering women of her era.
