Kyneton - Gnadenberg Church - Lutheran - Sth Australia - 1904

The Gnadenberg Church is in the Barossa Valley near Kyneton in South Australia.  Grapes from the vines planted near the church, are made into the famed red wine, known as Henschke  'Hill of Grace' . A very poplular drop!  The English translation of Gnadenberg is "Hill of Grace" .

Historyof the area: "A typical small Barossa Lutheran church surrounded by vineyard and framed by gum trees is Gnadenberg (Hill of Grace). The vineyard is owned by the Henschke family, who produce a famous red wine called Hill of Grace. Gnadenberg is in the hills east of Angaston, between Keyneton and Moculta. Gnadenberg was settled in 1856 by people from Bethany, who were seeking new land and the Gnadenberg church shares a pastor with the Strait Gate Lutheran Church in Light Pass".
