The Ashmead family, and Elderton’s employees, contribute a great deal to the Barossa region through their work on a range of local boards and committees. They believe in giving back to the community in which Elderton operates and are passionate about developing the Barossa.
Cameron is a proud Barossan and has served the local community by being on the board and Chairman of the Barossa Co-op (one of Australia’s largest co-operatives), chairing the Nuriootpa Regional Community Association and being a director on the Barossa Foundation.
Allister has been inducted into the Barons of the Barossa, which is in recognition of efforts and service to the region (there have only been about 80 Barons inducted in the past 30 or so years). He previously sat on the boards of Barossa Wine & Tourism and the BGWA, was the chairperson of the Distinguished Wine Auction from 2008 – 2013, and chaired the Barossa Winemakers’ Committee (2006 – 2009). Allister was also chosen in the inaugural Future Leaders Course conducted jointly by Wine Australia.
