Schild Estate

In 1952, Ben Schild moved to the Barossa Valley with his wife, and purchased the first Schild Estate Vineyards. In 1956, he passed away suddenly, leaving his only son Ed, 16 years old at that time, to take over the family business. Ed gathered the family and suggested making wine by using the grapes grown on their vines for generations, hence the first Schild Estate wine label was born in 1998.


Soon in 2000, The Schild Family purchased the historical Lyndoch bank building and converted it to their first cellar door. From generation to generation, the Schild family has journeyed from early German pioneers to becoming one of the Barossa's oldest family-owned grape growers and most successful wineries. The vintage of 2015, 2016 & 2017 Moorooroo Shiraz, all scored a near-perfect 99 points from James Halliday.
