Glen Eldon Wines is a family owned and operated winery established by Mary and Richard Sheedy in 1997
Glen Eldon Wines has vineyards located throughout the Barossa Floor and Eden Valley, each one selected for itâ€™s micro-climate and distinctive flavour attributes for the final wine in mind. The main vineyard and cellar is located at the Glen Eldon property in Eden Valley, it was only fitting to honour this brand with the Glen Eldon name. The property was first settled in the 1880s by the Herbig family, who planted vines, fruit trees and ran cattle and sheep. In 1890 the homestead, stables and cellar were built and the Herbig Family began to make the property prosper. Today Richard and Mary call Glen Eldon home. All the vineyard and winery operations are centralised from their headquarters at Glen Eldon.
Prior to launching his family label of Glen Eldon Wines, Richard gained his experience as Winemaker/ General Manager at Elderton and previously at St Hallett Wines. Mary and Richard have successfully built Glen Eldon into a premium winery specialising in regional wines of distinctive quality. Glen Eldon today produces premium wines that display the world known and admired characters of the Barossa.
The Barossa is made up of the Valley floor and the Barossa Ranges (Eden Valley) and has built the reputation as Australiaâ€™s premier viticulture and winemaking region. Vines were first planted in the Barossa in the 1850â€™s and today the Barossa is alive with prosperity from the wine and associated industries.
Barossa Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Eden Valley Riesling have offered distinctive regional characters that have captured the imagination of wine drinkers the world over, it was with this tradition and quality that the Barossa was selected as the home for the Sheedy Family winery.
With vineyards in Tanunda, Mt McKenzie, Springton and North East of Mt Pleasant, Glen Eldon have the ability to select only the best parcels of fruit for winemaking. These vineyards all offer distinctive sub-regional characters. The variation in soil, rainfall, row facing and pruning, combined with attention to detail in vineyard management, consistently produce premium fruit.
The philosophy is to highlight the regional characters to the fullest. Modern winemaking knowledge is fully utilised for quality control. Traditional vinification techniques also have their place. Glen Eldon continue to ferment wines in traditional open fermenters with heading down boards and pump over regularly for full flavour and colour extraction. A mixture of French and American hogsheads is employed for barrel maturation. Ageing is dependent on each parcel, but generally carried out for eighteen to twenty for months. All wooded wines are remarkable for their well integrated oak and fine tannins. Theie sensational Eden Valley whites display brightly lit fruit, distinctive varietal expression, and clean varietal characters.
Glen Eldon Wines is committed to producing premium regional wines. We will continue to make small quantities of distinctive regional wine, utilizing the diversity of our vineyard plantings to highlight the micro environs of the Barossa. With this in mind we hope to see our wines on the best restaurant tables and only in the finest of wine retailers.
