About Schild Estate
Wines created with passion and authenticity.
Schild Estate is one of the oldest family-owned grape growers in the Barossa, tending some of the
oldest vines in the world. Planted in 1847, the Moorooroo vines are amongst the oldest continually producing Shiraz vines in Australia
From humble beginnings in Germany, the Schild family arrived in Australia in 1866, making their home in the
Barossa Valley. In 1952 Ben Schild purchased the first of the vineyards that the Schild family own and operate
to this day. His son Ed took the reigns at 16 years of age after Ben’s sudden death and today Ed, son Michael
and grandson Angus manage over 134ha of estate owned vineyards and specialise in producing premium,
estate-grown Barossa reds.
Under the guidance of Chief Winemaker Scott Hazeldine and driven by the unique characteristics of each vine-
yard, Schild Estate Wines are an authentic reflection of the Southern Barossa region terroir. Spread across 11
unique sites offering a diverse patchwork of soils and mesoclimates, this diversity allows Schild to produce a
range of premium fruit; favouring a slower ripening period for optimum flavour development.
With three generations of Schilds keeping the roots alive, and with grandchildren taking on the passion, the
Schild story is set to unfold well into the future.
