Allister has followed in his father’s shoes of being inducted into the Barons of the Barossa:  a recognition of efforts and service for the region. He has previously sat on the board of Barossa Wine & Tourism, and also the BGWA (2011 -2013). He was the chairperson of the Distinguished Wine Auction from 2008 – 2013 which raised circa $360k to help fund the Barossa Vintage Festival.
