Celebrating 40 years of the Ashmead’s at Elderton – A Vintage Story
2.00pm - 4.00pm
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.
