Celebrating 40 Years of the Ashmead’s at Elderton – A Vintage Story

Food and Wine

8 May 2021 Once Only Event

A Vintage Story promises an afternoon shaped by the relaxed, genuine hospitality Elderton is known for. Terroir-driven wines of distinction have earned this Barossa estate its place among Australia’s elite labels.

Now you’re invited to see first-hand how magic is made – and to toast 40 distinctive vintages.

Your experience begins with a stroll through the estate’s restored 1894 Command Vineyard.

Here you’ll discover why the Barossa is home to some of the oldest vineyards in the world and what the Ashmead family – second-generation owners of Elderton – are doing to preserve the heritage of these centurion vines.

Next comes a rare look inside the Elderton winery where, depending on the 2021 harvest season, you may well catch a glimpse of vintage action.

Bring closed-toe shoes and a curious eye: you’ll learn about the processes used to transform freshly picked grapes into celebrated wines.

From here it’s off to the award-winning Elderton Cellar Door, a beautifully restored homestead on the map as a luxury wine destination.

Enjoy a progressive tasting journey of current release wines accompanied by seasonally inspired canapés.

You’ll revel in the art of food and wine pairing. Signed copies of a new book celebrating 40 years of Elderton will be available for purchase on the day.
