Barossa Valley


The Barossa wine region is a contemporary region with a European tradition of celebrating food and wine that spans seven generations. The Barossa wine region has a long history of making full-bodied reds, fortified and robust white wines.

As well as its 70+ wineries, the Barossa is home to award-winning restaurants, stone churches and heritage buildings, in a uniquely Australian landscape of gum trees and vineyards.

The Barossa (zone) consists of the lower, warmer Barossa Valley (region), which is suited to producing award-winning Shiraz, and the cooler higher Eden Valley (region), famous for its Riesling.

The Barossa region produces a great variety of wine, with the main styles being Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Tour the Barossa and you’ll see well preserved 160-year-old villages, chateaus and churches, gracious heritage towns, century-old cellars and some of the world’s oldest Shiraz vineyards. Listen carefully and you might even hear the local German ‘Barossa Deutsch’ being spoken.

HISTORY

The Barossa’s winemaking and grape growing heritage dates back to 1842, when the first vines were planted by European immigrants. They left a distinctive legacy in the food and wine traditions and architecture of the region. Today the region is home to sixth-generation winemakers who work with some of the world’s oldest vines, as well as a dynamic community of artisan food producers.
