‘LIVING WITH THE LAND’

Dogged determination, a passion for adventure and an unflinching approach to innovation are valued qualities for most winemakers, but not all of them push things as far as Henry van Asch. Henry is an innovator and a pioneer, he is also co-founder of AJ Hackett Bungy. In 1993 Henry developed his love of wines and began planting grapes in Gibbston.

OUR WINES
