  8. Meet The Winemaker - Edlerton Wines

    Meet The Winemaker - Edlerton Wines

    Elderton Wines is located in South Australia's Barossa Valley. A region renowned for great big reds, something Elderton has in spades.

    Neil & Lorraine Ashmead moved to the Barossa in 1979, and sought out a homestead for the family. The homestead of choice in the heart of Nuriootpa was surrounded by extremely old Shiraz & Cabernet Cauvignon vines. It was during a period where demand for table wines was negligible and with 72 acres of derelect and little interest in it, the realestate agent eventually offered the Ashmeads the Vineyards as a bonus to the purchase of the homestead. Over the next three years they worked on restoring the vineyard and the birth of Elderton Wines.
