The winery was established by Ralph Jones in 1976 and named in honour of his German mother. His vision was to ‘play the curtain raiser’ in the Barossa Valley making wines of unique character from small parcels of premium fruit.
In 2009, Mark Pearce accepted Ralph Jones’ invitation to lead Kellermeister, and since then he has been committed to maintaining and improving the quality of Kellermiester’s wines. In 2012 the Pearce family purchased the winery. The same year, the winery shot to fame with its icon Shiraz “Wild Witch” winning ‘Best Shiraz in the World’ at the world’s most prestigious wine show – the International Wine Challenge , London.
