Henry's Drive



Handcrafting wines from our family vineyards in Padthaway, South Australia, Henrys Drive Vignerons is named in admiration of the 19th century mail coach service that once drove through our property.
Today, Kim continues to build the business she started with Mark with a singular aim as strong now as it was then to craft fine wines from one of Australias great wine growing regions.
Henry's Drive Vignerons was established by Kim Longbottom and her late husband Mark and takes its name from the 19th century mail coach service that once ran through their property.
Back then coaches were the only means of moving people and their mail through the farming and wine growing areas of South Australias South East and the men who drove them had the respect and admiration of all.
Around Padthaway that duty fell to Henry John Hill and his route was known as Henrys Drive.
Things have moved on somewhat but hard work and dedication remains as Kim continues to build the business she started with Mark with a singular aim as strong now as it was then to craft fine wines from one of Australias great wine growing regions.
