The Barossa has been home to the history and heritage of grapegrowing and winemaking for over five generations. The Barossa was also home to Stephen’s great-uncle Julius Henschke, a famous craftsman, artist and sculptor. Julius was recognized for ornate headstones and angel sculptures at Gnadenberg Cemetery, as well as his most famous work, the inspiring War Memorial on North Terrace in Adelaide. His Angel of Compassion and Duty sculptures are acclaimed across the country. Julius’ craft focused on the most pristine white Angaston marble quarried next to the cabernet sauvignon vineyard at Light Pass, planted on ancient red clay and limestone soil, which brings out exquisite flavor and structure in the wine.
