Henschke is a wine estate in South Australia that produces a range of wines from the Eden Valley and surrounding subregions. It is particularly known for the intense, full-bodied Hill of Grace, made from Shiraz vines that are up to 150 years old, and its sibling from the Mount Edelstone vineyard. The former is one of the most expensive wines to be made in Australia, whilst the Mount Edelstone Shiraz is often thought of as being similar quality at a more affordable price. Founded in 1862 by Silesian immigrants, Henschke is one of the oldest wine producers in Australia, and remains under the ownership of the family. Winemaker Stephen Henschke, educated at the Geisenheim Institute in Germany, and his viticulturist wife Prue are generally considered to be among the leading wine authorities in the country.
