Founders Tasting Experience

Elderton Wines owners, Cameron and Allister Ashmead, invite you to be their VIP guest; to experience an exclusive look at the history and heritage of Elderton Wines and enjoy the generous hospitality for which the Barossa is renowned.

A vineyard since 1894, and owned by the Ashmead family since 1979, the success of Elderton Wines doubtless testifies to the Australian wine industry’s ability to triumph against all odds, but it’s mainly one family’s tale of perseverance, passion and pride. Today, Elderton Wines is run by second generation brothers, Cameron and Allister, and together they work to uphold the values and traditions that were founded by their parents.
A short drive past the 1894 Command vineyard leads to the ultimate reveal of a luxury winery destination and key part of the Elderton and Ashmead story.

Walk through the 125 year old Command vineyard, which the Ashmead family worked tirelessly to restore, followed by a tasting of Elderton’s distinctive and world-renowned wines. The tasting includes back vintage wines from the family cellar and the legendary Command Shiraz.
This is an experience for discerning wine lovers who wish to advance their knowledge of elite wines of the Barossa and have access to rare and special wines available to purchase for their personal cellar.
