Elderton is a small, family-owned winery, situated at Nuriootpa in the heart of South East Australia's Barossa Valley.

Elderton Wines have gathered world wide acclaim for producing some of Australia's (and the world's) most highly regarded shiraz and cabernet sauvignon.

The second generation of the Ashmead family, brothers: Cameron and Allister now run the winery day to day and are passionate about producing wines that are balanced, varietally correct and classic in nature.

The Elderton vineyard was planted in 1894 by Samuel Elderton Tolley, and purchased by the Ashmead family in the late 1970's who began producing labelled bottled estate wine from 1982.

The Elderton Winery shot to prominence in the early 1990's, after winning the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy at the 1993 Melbourne Wine Show.

Further wine show successes including the World's Best Shiraz Trophy at the 2000 London International Wine and Spirits Competition. Elderton has enjoyed accolades from the worlds wine press, with great endorsements given by James Halliday - including recently proudly being named a 5 star winery (the highest rating given), Robert Parker, The Wine Spectator Magazine as well as countless others. In 2005, Elderton was named in the Top 100 Wineries in the World by Wine and Spirit Magazine.

The real strength behind the Elderton success is the ancient 72 acre Barossa Floor Vineyard, which produces fruit of the highest quality year in year out. Each block on the property is cherished but the two standouts are the 117-year-old Command Shiraz block and the 67-year-old Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon block.

The wines of Elderton are enjoyed worldwide for their amazing qualities which come through from varietal character, regional definition and the unique and robust personalities of the Elderton team.

In 2011, Elderton celebrated it's 30th vintage as a winery and the Ashmeads still believe that the best is yet to come.
