Richard came to the Barossa Valley in 1992 to study wine-making and never left.
“I fell in love with the generous friendly people, the wonderful weather, delicious food and of course the Shiraz … what more do you need?”
And so began the love affair that shows no sign of stopping. Along the way Richard was the youngest Chairman of the Barossa Winemakers Association, General Manager / Winemaker at Elderton Wines and Glen Eldon Wines has been twice voted dark-horse winery to watch by James Halliday. It has also been rated 5 stars for past 9 years in a row.
Yet for all the accolades it is in the vineyards and with his individual parcel wines in the winery that Richard is happiest. Here he gives full rein to his enthusiasm for bringing the unique expressions from his carefully selected micro-sites alive. Crafting distinctive rich generous wines.
