HentyFarm wine tasting

In 2009 Jono Mogg and Belinda Low spent several weekends traipsing through Henty in the Victorian countryside with winemaker Adam Wadewitz and his partner Nikki. They just couldn’t turn their backs on a magical combination of super cool climate, limestone bedrock soils and passionate growers, who were guiding the grapes through the sometimes arduously cool and wet conditions.

 

They spent long nights hatching a plan to bring their expression of Henty wines to life before making their dream a reality that same year. Their first vintage – a Chardonnay small in numbers but big on elegance, was a sign of things to come.

Hentyfarm is about artistic expression at its most elemental. It starts in the vineyard, where their relationship with the growers is based on respect as custodians of the land. Then the alchemy begins, where the combination of low intervention winemaking, native and introduced yeasts and naturally driven hand-plunged ferments, using older French oak, culminate in wines of finesse and elegance.

The Hentyfarm family’s collective approach is rustic and minimal, holding true to the idea that this winemaking venture is a farming practice. The Hentyfarm family is fiercely intent on keeping their production small and handcrafted.
