About the wines

McHenry Hohnen are passionate about their land; for this reason they aim to manage the sustainability of their vineyards using a range of practices that are ecologically sound. All of their viticultural practices nurture the biodiversity both within the soil microbiology that surrounds the vines and the insects and animals which are attracted to their healthy farm. McHenry Hohnen's vineyards are managed using biodynamic methods which are designed to improve the vitality and health of the soil and produce exceptional fruit that deliver a unique sense of place.

In the winery the approach reflects the same philosophy, with minimal intervention winemaking and the ultimate goal of crafting wines of distinctive character that are unique, honest and truly hand-made.
