Barossa Valley Wine Region

Adelaide Australia is known for its beautiful churches, great restaurants and the number of fantastic wine regions within a short drive of the city CBD. Perhaps the most famous wine region is the Barossa Valley, about 90 minutes north-east into the hills of Adelaide South Australia.

The Barossa Valley is a valley reminiscent of some of the best wine-growing regions of Germany – both in architecture and due to the large number of German settlers who populated the area in the late 1800s. The Barossa Valley weather is similarly cool, creating perfect Barossa wine-growing temperatures. Here you can find quaint stone churches with tall spires scattered amongst the many vineyards and Barossa Valley wineries.

Barossa Valley wine is known throughout the world for its satisfying Rieslings and rich Shiraz. You could visit two wineries a day for a month and still not have tasted every winery in the Barossa. The best way to get to know the area is through one of the many Barossa Valley wine tours, or wine and cheese tours.

You could also visit during one of the Barossa Valley festivals, such as the Barossa Vintage Festival in Easter where the wineries and Barossa restaurants across the Barossa Valley map open their doors to celebrate the vintages both past and present.

Accommodation in the Barossa Valley ranges from discrete B&Bs, luxury retreats, such as Peppers, through to stunning resorts such as the Novotel Barossa Valley. Given its close location to Adelaide, the Barossa Valley Australia is a popular weekend escape, or a welcome addition to an Adelaide vacation.
