The interest in making wine started early. When Frieda was eight years-old, on a dairy farm in New Zealand, she decided to tread grapes from the garden in her mother’s bread-pan. She poured the juice directly into bottles, so when fermentation started the fizzy mess spilled all over the floor. You could say fizz has always been her thing.
David started making wine at eleven, in a leafy Melbourne suburb, and never stopped. We still have that first bottle of plum wine around somewhere.
We’ve always loved sparkling wine so the decision to specialise in making it came naturally. In 2010 we started Henskens Rankin of Tasmania with just two tonne of fruit in tiny parcels and a vision of creating distinctively Tasmanian styles of sparkling.
To realise that vision we deliberately choose small-scale, artisanal approaches in our winemaking, always seeking to maximise quality. Doing crazy things carefully (wonderful advice from Eric Rodez).
Unashamedly luxurious and informed by our professional backgrounds in sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, Henskens Rankin of Tasmania is founded on the principle that luxury is ethical. It guides our winemaking and how we choose our partners. It extends to every aspect of the business, particularly our supply chain: wherever possible our packaging is ethically-sourced, re-useable, compostable and/or recyclable. From 2020 all our wines are vegan friendly.
It’s a journey in progress.
