Fri 20 May 2022
7:00 pm – 9:30 pm AEST
MEET THE WINEMAKER SERIES welcomes Scott Hazeldine, Chief Winemaker of Schild Winery from Barossa Valley for a 5 course dinner with wines
About this event
The Entrance Lake House aims to brig the very best winemakers into the Restaurant via Virtual Interviews with winemaker at their winery. We take a closer step into the heart of the winery and the role of a winemaker..

Hosted by Sean and a guest wine guru, we bring a winery and chief winemaker into the restuarant via a big screen tv to chat to us about wine, winemaking and life on the vineyard.

On Friday 15th April from 7pm we invite you to join us and Scott Hazeldine, Chief Winemaker of Schild Estate from Barossa Valley for dinner and matching wines.


In 2021 at James Halliday Awards, Our Five stars turned red this year, a status achieved by less than 10% of all wineries, or as James Halliday puts it five red stars indicates an “outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity”. Cheers Jimmy H.

Three Schild Estate wines (2017 Moorooroo Shiraz, 2017 Narrow Road Shiraz Cabernet and 2018 Barossa Valley Shiraz) were also highlighted as ‘Special Value’ - “Wines considered to offer special value for money within the context of their status”.

Once again the Moorooroo Shiraz made the ‘Best of the Best’ list for Shiraz sharing the spotlight with other wines of high esteem including Penfolds’ 2015 Bin 95 Grange, Henschke’s 2015 Hill of Grace and Brokenwood’s 2018 Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz. Excellent company to keep.


Scott joined the Schild Estate family in 2009 bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from time spent both locally and abroad.

His artisan approach to wine-making fits solidly with the Schild Estate ethos of letting the individual characteristics of each vineyard and vintage carry the wines made under his guidance. This allows Scott and his team to focus on the details that go into creating premium wines with a finesse that brings enjoyment into the glasses of wine lovers; a goal that Scott holds firmly above his extensive collection of internationally recognised awards and accolades.

Born and raised in Malawi, Scott was educated in the UK but lured to Australia by a love of wine culture with his fate sealed by his first vintage with Brown Brothers. Since then he has worked throughout the Barossa Valley with the likes of Stuart Blackwell, Matt Gant and Tim Smith before joining Bordeaux based “garagiste”producer Jonathan Maltus in his Australian operation Colonial Estate.

Seasoning his experience with time in Saint Emilion, Bordeaux and Napa Valley Scott has brought to Schild Estate a genuine excitement and passion for winemaking. A passion that simultaneously honours traditions worthy of working with some of the world’s oldest vines whilst maintaining an enthusiasm for a journey of continuous discovery.

Under Scott’s leadership Schild Estate has been recognised as a Five Star Winery in the James Halliday 2019 Wine Companion as well as producing the highly coveted 2015 Moorooroo Shiraz which was awarded 99 points in the same edition. These highlights sit amongst many other internationally recognised awards, a list too lengthy to mention.
