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 SEPPELT

From its humble beginnings in 1851, when Joseph Seppelt established Seppeltsfield in the Barossa, Seppelt has been at the forefront of Australian winemaking including pioneering Australia’s first sparkling wine. Today Seppelt is part of the Treasury Wine Estates portfolio and is known for producing a range of quality wines from highly regarded vineyard sites in Victoria. Sepplet draws fruit from vineyards situated in the cool Grampians, the Henty Hinterland, Heathcote and Bendigo. Each region offers distinctive regional typicity, forming backbone of the Seppelt’s portfolio. Best known for iconic wines including St Peters Shiraz and Drumborg Riesling, Seppelt also produces a range of sparkling white and Shiraz wines including the Show Sparkling Limited Release Shiraz made only in exceptional years.
