Henschke is Named Australasia's Most Admired Wine Brand 2021

Henschke has been voted No. 4 in the Drinks International ‘World’s Most Admired Wine Brands 2021’.

Drinks International announced the coveted list over the Easter long weekend, compiled by tallying up votes from an academy made up of wine industry professionals, “including buyers, sommeliers, wholesalers, bar owners, Masters of Wine, writers and educators from 48 different countries”.

The fourth placing resulted in Henschke taking the regional award for the ‘Most Admired Wine Brand in Australasia’.

Drinks International editor Martin Green said: “The Most Admired Wine Brands 2021 highlights the most iconic, exciting and innovative producers in the world.

“To win a place on this prestigious list is a tremendous achievement. There are thousands of wine brands vying for attention around the world, but just 50 elite icons have made the cut.

“Congratulations to all of the brands featured this year. They have earned the respect of hundreds of wine professionals and experts spread across the globe, and they have now gained the ultimate stamp of quality.”

This is the 11th year in which Drinks International has compiled its definitive guide to the World’s Most Admired Wine Brands.

Stephen Henschke, owner and chief winemaker, said: “We are thrilled that our 150-year-old, sixth-generation family-owned winery has been voted in at No. 4 of the Top 50 World’s Most Admired Wine Brands for 2021, up by fourteen places from last year, and our second inclusion in this prestigious list.

“We are grateful to receive this accolade from the Drinks International voting academy. This is an achievement that can be shared by our hard-working team and representatives across the world.

“Our philosophy has always been to be ‘better’ rather than ‘bigger’. My father Cyril, a fourth-generation Henschke winemaker, was a pioneer of single-varietal and single-vineyard table wines in Australia, with his greatest legacy being the creation of Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace in the 1950s; shiraz wines from the Eden Valley that have become an integral part of our country’s fine wine story.”
