Englishman Joseph Gilbert planted the first Eden Valley Riesling vineyard, Pewsey Vale, in 1847. During the 1930s the vineyard, like so many others in Australia, fell into disuse as a result of the severe economic hardship of the Great Depression.

It was not until the 1960s that the vineyard was replanted, the new vines propogated from the original vines, and other Riesling vineyards took hold in Eden Valley. Across Australia, Riesling became the most planted white grape variety, up until the 1990s when Chardonnay became more popular.

Eden Valley’s growers and winemakers remain loyal to Riesling, which still flourishes in the region. There is a resolute independence among Riesling winegrowers who refuse to buy into cycles of popular trends and new varieties. It is, for this reason, they continue to craft some of the finest, most age-worthy and best value white wines in Australia.

Riesling Eden Valley unites all the Riesling producers in Eden Valley under the common purpose of promoting their wines. Lot B05 in the 2021 Barossa Wine Auction contains 60 bottles of wine from across the region, featuring a current and back-vintage Riesling from 30 producers. The lucky buyer, will have many opportunities to taste Riesling Eden Valley, in a number of formats, providing many fun and learning opportunities.
