A rich work with striking full colour photography by talented Barossa photographer Dragan Radocaj, Hill of Grace features images from the Henschke archives and historic lithographs showing paintings by English artist George French Angas who captured scenes of colonial South Australia when he visited in the 1840s. The book features Henschke Hill of Grace tasting notes from 1858 to 2012 as well as information on all Henschke single-vineyards and their most prized wines. Author Fiona MacDonald takes readers on the fascinating Henschke journey from Prussia in 1841 to today; their escape from the religious prosecution of King Friedrich Wilhelm III; their challenging journey to the bottom of the world to carve out new lives in the Australian bush and tales of the generations that lie behind the legend of Henschke wine.

Author Biography

Fiona MacDonald began her media career as a presenter on children's television program Wombat and co-hosted 1980s game show It's a Knockout. She has appeared on Burke's Backyard, Look Who's Talking and Good Morning Australia. Fiona has contributed articles and columns to The Courier Mail in Brisbane,The Sunday Telegraph in Sydney, Elle Magazine and The Weekend Australian Magazine. She has spent the last twenty years in marketing and public relations for the wine industry, working on events including the annual launch of Australia's most prized single-vineyard wine, Henschke Hill of Grace. During the writing of Hill of Grace, Fiona discovered that her own family tree could be traced back to the 12th century MacDonalds on the Scottish Isles. In a parallel to the Henschke story, Fiona's ancestors came to South Australia as free settlers in 1853 on a ship called the HMS Hercules. Fiona now runs consultancy Wine Chronicles specialising in wine storytelling and public relations from her home beside one of Sydney's eastern beaches.
