While the house, interior are certainly beautiful and the staff is friendly the wines were below my expectations. It's certainly a question of individual tastes, but we would not go back.
Tasting costs $10 per person for 5 wines and is only redeemable for purchases of $100 and over. All in all a disappointing experience on our visit.

Nice cellar door at a family owned vineyard just outside Nuriootpa. Sadly I was disappointed in the wines which were mostly fairly ordinary offerings and expensive for what they were. The staff member concentrated his attention on the trendy couple from Sydney rather than the local ‘pensioners’. Would not bother again.

We visit the Barossa Valley and Elderton every year and it is always such a great experience. Every member of the Elderton team take such pleasure and pride in representing this family winemaking success story. The drive through the vineyard to the spectacular cellar door builds the anticipation of some excellent wines which deliver at every level of varietal and price. For me, I am always amazed at how well these wines drink upon release yet cellar brilliantly. Don't miss Elderton if you are in the Valley.

An amazing experience. The experience provided by Jodhi was exceptional, she made us feel so welcomed. The ambiance of the cellar door was also outstanding, and then there is the wines. Spectacular!!! The vintages each year is always sheer quality at an awesome price point. Huge thanks Jodhi for a wonderful time.

In todays environment, there are a lot of international buyers and influences in the South Australian wine industry. Elderton remains a truely authentic Australian experience, owned by the same family now for over 40 years. Alistair, Cameron and Lorraine Ashmead should be commended for the wonderful welcoming new cellar door, with a team of staff are always very friendly and great to talk with. Last but not least, the wine, of course is fantastic!

Superlatives are not that useful with Elderton - just a professional outfit. I first enjoyed their wine around 1995 and have been a regular customer since. The range and quality is difficult to find replicated elsewhere and the people are just fantastic. The work they have invested in their Barossa Valley property has resulted in a magnificent show piece that can be enjoyed by all.

Undoubtedly, one of the best experiences in the Barossa Valley. Fantastic Cellar Door for tasting in a relaxed atmosphere with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Some may think that their premium wines could be on the expensive side (due to their superior quality), but don't let that put you off - they have something for all tastes and budgets. It is a MUST-DO for serious wine tasters, so don't let the opportunity pass. Be the envy of your friends when they find out you have visited Elderton Wines.

We booked in for the food and wine flight which consisted of 5 wines with matching canapes. The flight itself was enjoyable and, upon request, we were offered a tasting of the Command Shiraz and the Ashmead Cab Sav.
The wines were excellent and our host, Cameron, looked after us exceptionally well. Following the tasting, Cameron set us a table in the garden where we enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine.
Thanks for the experience Cameron and Team.

What a great cellar door, really well presented with wonderful staff.

My wife and I did the shiraz masterclass a few years and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very informative and interesting to learn about how the wines differ from year to year.

Each time we go to Barossa Elderton is one of the places we visit.

Great wines to buy as well even though I buy too many according to the wife.

It really is interesting seeing the different Shiraz side by side to illustrate vineyard an winemaking differences. We are pleased that you enjoyed the tasting! Thanks for sharing your experience. Cheers, Jodhi

My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Jodhi the Elderton Wines Cellar door manager at the Brisbane Good Food and Wine Festival. She was wonderful ! Friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the Elderton Wines story. We were so impressed we have arranged a trip to the Barossa in June and Elderton Wines is certainly a ‘must do’. Did I mention the wines are fantastic too ? Steve and Suzanne
