Hill of Grace is the story of a family who escaped the tyranny of their homeland in 1841 and journeyed to the bottom of the world. Resilience and courage drove the Henschkes as they travelled deep into the Barossa ranges to carve out new lives in the strange territory of the Australian bush. From the very beginnings of settlement in South Australia, many vineyards were planted, with the wine industry seen as a golden opportunity. Many of these colonial vineyards were lost in time. Few attained the international success of Henschke Hill of Grace. This story goes back in time to when the Hill of Grace was planted, following six generations of the family who each contributed to the legend. In 2018 the family celebrate 150 years of winemaking. Current custodians Stephen and Prue, work hand in hand with their progeny, Johann, Justine and Andreas, holding traditions dear, while leading the way to nurture their land with organic and biodynamic practices. As Henschke generations come and go the gnarled Hill of Grace vines have stood constant, magnificent sentinels guarding the past and future.
