Region Henty

Henty

Situated 300 km west of Melbourne in Southwestern Victoria, Henty was named after the first family to settle in Victoria in the 1800’s. The region was pioneered in 1964 by Karl Seppelt, who recognized that the cool climate was ideal for the production of sparkling and aromatic wines. The Seppelts planted 100 hectares at Drumborg in 1964 and this was followed by Crawford River in 1975. The long, gentle autumn ripening period allows the retention of both acid and aromatics crucial for Henty’s flagship variety, Riesling.

Winery CRAWFORD RIVER WINES

Tucked away in Henty, South-Western Victoria, Crawford River Estate was established in 1874 as a sheep and cattle station and still remains in family hands. Fourth generation grazier and Wagga-trained winemaker John Thomson planted a vineyard in 1975 and produced his first late harvest Riesling in 1979. Now joined by his daughter Belinda Thomson, the wines have gone from strength to strength. Best known for their Reserve Riesling, Crawford River also produces a Riesling from younger vines in addition to Semillon, Rosé, and Cabernet Merlot; the hallmark of the entire range being balance and poise.
