The Story

Grab a glass of wine, pull up a pew and let us tell you the story of how Hentyfarm came to life.

The story begins in Henty, in Victoria’s Far South West. Other than being a well-kept secret for a few insiders, this region has been relatively unknown for many years. These days, the word is out that it’s a hot spot for cool-climate wine production.

It all started in 2009, when Jono and Adam Wadewitz were working together at Best’s Great Western – Jono as General Manager of sales and marketing, and Adam as winemaker. The Mogg and Wadewitz families grew interested in this area after experiencing Henty on weekend sojourns through the Victorian countryside. We spent our nights hatching a plan to bring our expression of Henty wines to life. We simply couldn’t turn our backs on this magical combination of super cool climate, limestone bedrock soils and passionate growers, who were guiding the grapes so adeptly through the sometimes arduously cool and wet conditions.
