The Roehr Wines Estate vineyard in Nuriootpa, South Australia, is home to some of the Barossa Valley's most mature Shiraz, now almost a century old.

Elmor Roehr's great-great grandfather emigrated from Hamburg, Germany to Austraila in 1841. Amongst the earliest settlers at Ebenezer (meaning 'Hitherto hath the Lord helped us') in the north of the Barossa Valley, the Roehr family took up farming and grape-growing.

The Roehr Wines Estate vineyard area is about 32 hectares, or about 80 acres, where the soil types vary from sandy or ironstone topsoil, with most areas having red clay underneath. Some parts of the vineyard also have a substantial layer of limestone under the topsoil, somewhat like that of the terra rossa soils of South East of South Austraila. All wines are aged for 12 to 18 months in American oak hogsheads, depending on the characteristics of that particular wine.
