The story of Australia's celebrated Hill of Grace Shiraz and the history of the family who craft this wine is now available in a spectacular book, 'Hill of Grace: 150 Years of Henschke Under Southern Skies', written by Fiona MacDonald.
A history of the Henschke family who escaped religious tyranny in their home land, journeying to the bottom of the world in 1841, where they carved out new lives deep in the Barossa ranges. Many vineyards were planted by early settlers in South Australia, with the wine industry viewed as a golden opportunity. Sadly many of these colonial vineyards were lost in time. Few attained the international success of Henschke Hill of Grace. This story goes back to when the Hill of Grace was planted, exploring six generations of the family who contributed to the legend. In 2018 the Henschkes celebrate 150 years of winemaking. 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. Featuring Hill of Grace tasting notes from 1958 to 2013 and stunning full-colour photographs by renowned Barossa photographer Dragan Radocaj.
