Have you ever wondered just what it takes to make great wine?
What the difference really is between the thousands of litres of wines produced in Australia and the few truly celebrated great wines of the world?
Behind the Vines is the ultimate wine experience for discerning wine lovers.
The Ashmead family are the second generation custodians of the famous Command Vineyard planted in 1894, and personally invite you to experience exactly what it takes to make award winning wine – from vineyard to bottle – and to appreciate the aging process of wines.
Hosted by an Ashmead family member (most often Cameron or Allister), we promise you a rare, authentic experience which is shared with few outside of our craft. Learn about Elderton’s place in the history of the Barossa, whilst standing among vines planted 125 years ago, before being shown through our winery where you’ll taste wines still in barrel. Perhaps the pinnacle of this experience will be the rare access and private tasting in our stunning glass WK Rice “The Duke” cellar, where we will open an aged wine which has been selected exclusively for you to enjoy in the sprawling comfort of our Cellar Door (the original Elderton Homestead, circa 1918.)
Allow 3 hours for this behind the scenes experience.
$300 per person, minimum of 2 people.
If you would like to enjoy Elderton a little longer, a private luncheon can be arranged by prior notice, for an additional charge.
“Why do some family generational wineries connect with your soul, not just your palate? Elderton wines spill over with unique taste that is enhanced by understanding how their family history enriches the flavours. Always shared in an up close and personal way about its past, present & future, told with humour, humility & honesty. Go there and experience the fabulous wine and a history that should make the Barossa proud to have them. A Barossa must for wine lovers. “
