Liberty Wines welcomes Henschke
Eden Valley based Henschke is a 'world-class addition' to Australia portfolio
Liberty Wines is delighted to be appointed the agent in Ireland for Henschke, one of Australia’s most renowned, family-owned wine producers. The wines will be available through Liberty Wines from 1st June.
Henschke celebrated 150 years of family winemaking in 2018. Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke took over running the winery in 1979 and, 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. Their three sites in the Eden Valley and their ‘Lenswood’ vineyard in the Adelaide Hills are all farmed using biodynamic principles, with Prue at the forefront of re-introducing native plants to improve biodiversity.
Stephen Henschke comments: “We have enjoyed working with Liberty Wines in the UK since January last year and are delighted to be represented by Liberty Wines in Ireland. We are confident that the team’s expertise with Australian wines and their broad customer base in Ireland will enable us to build on our success to date. We thank Harshal and Andrew of Pembroke Wines for their support and enthusiasm for our family’s wines.”
David Gleave MW, managing director of Liberty Wines, adds: “Henschke is a world-class addition to our premium Australia portfolio in Ireland, perfectly complementing our existing South Australia producers and strengthening our offering from the Eden Valley. Prue and Stephen’s firm commitment to quality, sustainability and innovation, combined with their wealth of very old, low-yielding vines, is giving wines of exceptional quality. It is also nice to see that the future of the estate is in safe hands as the next generation - winemaker Johann, marketer Justine and ambassador Andreas - is now actively involved in the family business.”
