About the Winery
A year after its establishment in 1962, Ashton Winery had 46 members who delivered approximately 2,130 tons of grapes. Today the winery has 50 shareholders producing 24,000 tons of grapes annually.
Thanks to this collaboration, the winery has access to soil varieties and viticulture practices that are synonymous with its unique climate.
As a result, Ashton Winery creates exceptional wines with a wide selection, offering a choice to suit every palate.
