"If the grapes are grown right from the start, the wine will essentially make itself." David Hohnen
Welcome to McHenry Hohnen Vintners!
With the wisdom of three generations of vignerons and winemakers we take a purists approach; focussing on single vineyard wines, biological farming and a "hands off" philosophy to winemaking.
McHenry Hohnen was founded in 2004 by pioneering Margaret River winemaker and 3rd generation biological farmer David Hohnen and his brother-in-law, grape-grower and wine retailer Murray McHenry.
Our team is headed by winemaker Julian Grounds and viticulturalist Mike Sleegers. Julian is a winemaker who eschews technology in the winemaking process and Mike employs a bio-dynamic approach to the vineyard. Collectively McHenry Hohnen incorporates pre-industrial practices which exemplifies a new generation of winemaking.
With an ethos of quality over quantity, we create small lots of expressive, authentic, fine wines.
We endeavour to engage and educate wine drinkers on the merits of pre-industrial wine growing and grape handling via the unadulterated quality of flavours in our sustainably produced wines.
In our portfolio you will see hand-picked alternative varieties, wild ferments and full flavours.
