Barossa Valley’s Elderton Wines
Elderton Wines is situated in the Barossa Valley, ‘Australia’s Global Wine and Food Region’ just one hour’s drive from Adelaide. Since 1979, the Ashmead family has molded Elderton into an iconic Australian winery that upholds the values of the regional Barossa brand positioning. Allister and Cameron work hard with grapes and have a philosophy of making top-quality wines with a low-yield of grapes. The cellar door is a 1918-built homestead surrounded by vineyards and natural beauty.
Mediterranean climate near the winery
Barossa is one of the most important wine regions in Australia and has the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. The region has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and dry summers with suitable rainfall. The climate is similar to Bordeaux, and the natural conditions are perfect for making wine. The company’s vineyards are present in Nuriootpa, Greenock, and Craneford. Riesling, Semillon, Chardonnay, Grenache, Mataro, Merlot, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon are grown here.
Sustainability and other activities
Elderton’s philosophy mirrors some of the best wineries in the world, and they take a sustainable approach to wine production. The company uses many techniques and methods day-to-day to reduce the effect on the environment and preserve nature. The owners and staff members take great care of their region and also give back a lot to the local community. The cellar door has been awarded as the best in Australia a few years back, and the company looks forward to hosting wine lovers and visitors at the estate.
