Barossa Wine Auction 2021

2021 Barossa Wine Auction header

The Barossa Wine Auction has been part of the Barossa Vintage Festival since 1965. Held every two years, a share of the net proceeds from the event support the Vintage Festival and the Barossa Well-being Fund.

The Auction offers a unique opportunity to bid on iconic wines from the Barossa’s most celebrated winemakers. It features wines straight from winery and winemakers’ cellars, including rare vertical collections of back vintages, large format bottles and special releases. There are also a number of experiences up for auction.

For the first time, in 2021 there will be two live auctions – one in the Barossa during Vintage Festival, Friday 16 April, and the second in Sydney, Thursday 29 April. If you are unable to attend either event, you can bid live via the Langton’s brokerage team.

We have lots available in both auctions. These are specially curated by Allister, and this year include some amazing wines to celebrate our 40 Vintages of Elderton Wines.
