Located at Lyndoch in the midst of the Barossa Valley, South Australia lies Ross Estate Wines, a family owned winery, creating traditional boutique wines from century old vineyards, handcrafted in a modern state-of-the-art facility.

The story of Ross Estate dates back (as far as can be ascertained) to the end of the 19th century when it was a general farm with vineyards and a cemetery. In that cemetery lies William Jacob who, with his brother John, in 1885 established the Barossa Valley's first vineyard and winery. Nearby is Hoffnungsthal, the site of the first Silesian settlement (1847) where the small farming community worked hard to establish themselves only to be defeated by floods.

Current owners, Darius and Pauline Ross, fell in love with the 110 acre property in the early 90's and invested in their life long passion for wine. Together, after years of hard work, they have created a splendid estate. Darius designed the Polish inspired winery and cellar door, surrounded by lawns and rose gardens. The winery opened its doors just prior to the 1998 vintage and soon after a beautiful sandstone cellar door complete with private tasting room was added.

With extensive knowledge from former winemakers Rod Chapman and Neville Falkenberg, of Penfold's fame, and young winemaker Alex Peel, Ross Estate Wines has set the benchmark for boutique winemaking and continually producing award winning wines of outstanding consistent quality.
