About Haan Wines
They travelled the world in search of the ultimate home, a place that would fulfil their dream of making very special wine, they kept returning to the Barossa Valley, drawn by all it had to offer
After 26 years in the Hong Kong airline industry, Baron Hans Rudolf Haan established Haan Estate Wines in 1993, acquiring 26.3 hectares near Tanunda. The original site Hanenhof was initially planted in 1853 by George Friedrich Schmidt, who purchased the property for a pound an acre. The celebrated Barossa Merlot virtuoso James Irvine, assisted in the establishment of Haan by restoring and replanting the ancient vines. He further left his legacy on Haan Estate by mentoring the winemakers. The 18-hectares surrounding Hanenhof Estate consist mainly of the sandy loam soils which dominate Barossa Valley floor. These soils have proven excellent for producing rich, luscious Shiraz and Cabernets, varieties that have made the Barossa famous throughout the world. Hans and Fransien Haan renovated an 1850s vintage farmhouse, with a cottage, studio and tennis court, to make a homestead winery with a beautiful garden.
More About Halls Gap Estate Winery
Halls Gap Vineyard was planted on the steep eastern slopes of the Grampians Ranges in 1969
Halls Gap Estate represented part of the second coming of the Victorian wine industry, which had seen very little new plantings since the turn of the century. The region had always had a pedigree for great wines with the first vineyards in Grampians being planted at Bests & Seppelts, in the early 1860s. The Halls Gap property had long been a respected grower for many of the country’s great wineries, Seppelts and Penfolds, until 1996, when it was bought by the famed Victorian winemaker, the late, great Trevor Mast. It remained a staple of Mount Langi Ghiran until acquisition by Aaron Drummond of Circe Wines in 2013.

About Hanging Rock Winery
All his time spent working as a drink waiter and cellar manager while failing veterinary science, must have made an impression on John Ellis
Ellis graduated as Dux of his winemaking course from Roseworthy College in 1971 and began his illustrious winemaking career at Krondorf and Yalumba wineries. In 1974 John went to the Hunter Valley to become the foundation winemaker at the newly established Rosemount Estate. Within two years John had put Rosemount Estate on the map internationally and made a name for himself as one of the young Turks of the industry. The next move came in 1978 when John, with his wife Ann Tyrrell, went to Echuca on the Murray River in Victoria, to help establish the Tisdall Winery. Tisdall quickly became a high profile and successful brand in the seventies and early eighties, enjoying something of a cult following.
More About Hanwood Estate Wines
Plant a six-inch nail in this soil, water it and in a year you will have a crowbar
So said John James McWilliam when he arrived in Hanwood in 1913. The development of the Riverina region as a major wine producing area was primarily due to the foresight of the McWilliam family. The Riverina, and Hanwood in particular, was an area John James McWilliam the son of McWilliam's founder, Samuel McWilliam had identified earlier as having the potential to service the growing domestic and export wine markets.
More on the Hardys Winery
Thomas Hardy left Devon in 1850 at the age of 20 and migrated to the new colony of South Australia
He established a winery on the banks of Adelaide's River Torrens in 1853. His Bankside winery was the start of an outstanding family wine business that grew to become one of the world's great wine companies. Thomas Hardy was a self-made man, a pioneer of immense character. With a mixture of energy, determination, shrewd judgment, innovation and a touch of daring, he pursued the highest standards in winemaking. At Bankside, and later at his McLaren Vale property Tintara, he focused on quality and craftsmanship. Tintara was to become the centre of Hardy's enterprise and by the late 1800s was one of the best-equipped and managed wineries in Australia. This success was substantially due to Hardy's initiatives in planting higher quality, lower yielding varieties rather than the coarser, heavier-yielding types more common at the time. His willingness to experiment with and to use novel equipment, much of which he designed and built himself, also contributed to this success.
About Hartz Barn Wines
Hartz Barn is a family operated vineyard winery at Moculta in the Barossa and Eden Valleys
The Barossa is recognised throughout Australia as a vital part of the nation's heritage and is an important wine and tourist region. Explorers and settlers were attracted to the Barossa very soon after the settlement of South Australia in 1836. George Fife Angus conducted a program of assisted immigration that was to have lasting effects on the character of the Barossa. The largest group was German Lutherans who came to South Australia in 1838-1841, seeking to escape religious restrictions in Prussia. This strong German influence is reflected in the immaculate Lutheran Churches spread throughout the Barossa landscape. Along with them, British immigrants arrived to add diversity to the settlements and commence farming, grape growing and winemaking.
About Hay Shed Hill Winery
Hay Shed Hill is a classic old vineyard in the heart of the Willyabrup Valley, where the region’s first vines were planted and the great tradition of Margaret River wine began
The Hay Shed Hill property was a group settlement farm for returned soldiers from the 1st World War and was originally established as a diary farm. The current homestead, considerably renovated, still has much of the original Group Settlement look and feel. Vines were first planted in 1973 to the varieties which have put Margaret River on the wine map; Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The property was known as Sussex Vale until 1989 when it was bought by Barry & Liz Morrison. The Morrison’s were instrumental in establishing what you see today, managing to turn a fairly run down farm with a few vines into a quality grape producer with nearly 18 ha of vines. The place was planted right, the right varieties on the right slopes with the right soils. The winemakers today enjoy the advantage of working with truly mature vines.

About Heathcote Estate Winery
Heathcote Estate was established exclusively for the production of one wine a single vineyard Shiraz
During the 1850s, Heathcote was the scene of fevered activity as an important gold field town and today Heathcote is best known for producing another rich and prized gem, Heathcote Shiraz. The rich red Cambrian soil and dry mild climate provide the idyllic foundation for producing world class Shiraz and are indeed the reason why Heathcote is considered one of Australia's pre-eminent regions for our most noted variety.
About the Heathcote Winery Winery
Heathcote Winery was one of the first commercial wineries in Heathcote
Uniquely positioned along Heathcote's main street, Heathcote Winery holds a surprise for many of its visitors. Few could ever expect to find a fully functioning winery directly behind a Cellar Door. The estate wineworks and adjacent art gallery are sited within the restored produce store built by Thomas Craven in 1854 to cater for the huge influx of gold miners seeking their fortune. Thomas Craven sold wine and spirits, and traded in gold. An entrepreneurial type, he also ran a coach service (depicted in the logo) from stables behind the Cellar Door, delivering supplies and mail around Central Victoria, hence the significance of the estate's Mail Coach range.

More on the Heirloom Winery
Heirloom Vineyards were conceived in vintage 2000, when a young winemaking student caught the eye of a silly old wine judge
A love story ensued inspired by two vows, to preserve the best of tradition, the old world of wine and unique old vineyards, to champion the best clones of each variety planted in the most appropriate sites, embracing the principals of organic and biodynamic farming. Seven long vintages of trial and error passed before Heirloom Vineyards could make a wine that was fine enough to pass on to future generations. That is this wine.

More About Henschke Wines
Henschke is one of the longest established family names in the Barossa
Johann Christian Henschke purchased land for a farm at Keyneton in 1861, after fleeing religious persecution in Silesia. He planted a small vineyard and an orchard, and after initially making wine for family consumption produced his first commercial vintage in 1868, believed to be principally riesling and shiraz. Each subsequent generation built upon the reputation for quality, but it was fourth-generation Cyril Alfred Henschke who in 1958 created the wine that has most captured the red wine world's imagination - Hill of Grace.

About Hentley Farm Winery
Hentley Farm is a truly special property, hand picked by Keith Hentschke for its soil quality and geographical contours
The wines of Hentley Farm are all about listening to the land and planting the right vines in the right place, in the right way. Set on the red brown earth of western Barossa, propitiously positioned on the sacred soils between Gawler and Nuriootpa, Greenock and Tanunda, Hentley Farm founders Keith and Alison Hentschke acquired the 150 acre vineyard and mixed farming property in the 1990s. Following extensive research to find out where the best red wine grapes in the Barossa Valley were being produced, their studies led them towards the rich red soils of the Seppeltsfield area. Keith used an old soil map from the 1950s to strategically locate the best parcels of land and after a number of years acquired Hentley Farm.
