Barossa Valley

Just an hour from Adelaide, the Barossa Valley draws on 160 years of winemaking heritage to showcase the best of South Australia’s food and wine culture. Big reds reign supreme here, especially the famous Barossa Valley Shiraz. But modern and experimental wine producers have also made a name for themselves with new grape varieties and styles. Besides its signature full-bodied shiraz, the Barossa Valley also produces other world class varieties including cabernet sauvignon, grenache, riesling and semillion.

As you drive through the Aussie rural scenery of the Barossa Valley, you may pick up on a distinctly German vibe to the region’s architecture. Like Hanhdorf in the Adelaide Hills, the Barossa Valley was settled by German Lutherans in the mid 19th century. Since they bought their vine clippings with them, the Barossa has more reasons to be grateful for their arrival than simply the quaint churches and German cuisine.
