The Henschke family is one of the longest-established wine names in the Barossa Valley. Each generation built upon the reputation for quality, but it was fourth-generation Cyril Alfred Henschke who in 1958 created the wine that has most captured the red wine world's imagination - Hill of Grace. His first vintage of this Shiraz was produced in 1958. Today, fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue uphold the family name and reputation, as winemaker and viticulturist respectively. The Mount Edelstone, Hill of Grace, Eden Valley and Lenswood vineyards produce the range of Henschke wines, managed by viticulturist Prue Henschke and a result of her leading edge research and development. They vary from venerable dry-grown Shiraz vineyards to the newer cooler-climate Lenswood vineyards supporting varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Merlot.
