Saltram has celebrated the tradition and heritage behind the Barossa Valley, making flagship red wines of great style and taste. Many of Australia's most influential and celebrated winemakers have passed through the Saltram's cellar doors throughout its 150 year history.
During this time, two families dominated winemaking; the Salters and Dolans. Three generations of Salters made wine until 1937 and the Dolans played a part at Saltram from the 1950s through until 2007. After more than 150 years, the winemaking excellence continues with Saltram still producing quality premium wines loved and admired by many within the Australian wine industry.
Shavaughn then moved to Mildara’s Coonawarra winery in the late 1990s where she developed a passion for regional varietal wines. In 2000 Shavaughn further expanded her winemaking expertise. While working at Yellowglen, one of Australia’s leading sparkling producers, she learnt the sparkling craft from Charles “Chilly” Hargrave, a time she truly valued.
Healesville in the Yarra Valley was Shavaughn’s home from 2001 to 2003 where she worked with a broad spectrum of wines at Yarra Ridge and St Hubert’s, including Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. She moved to the Barossa in 2003, joining the white wine team at Wolf Blass
