The Barossa features more than 80 cellar doors. With gourmet cuisine on offer, it's a wine and food haven just an hour's drive from Adelaide.
Indulge in the Barossa
Immerse yourself in a region where luxury retreats offer award-winning wines, world-class cuisine and panoramic views. The winemakers will be glad to share their stories and secrets over a glass of their best vintage.
The Mediterranean climate of the Barossa (warm summers and mild winters) is perfectly suited for red wine production, particularly Shiraz and a richly flavoured Cabernet.
Situated within the Barossa region is the Eden Valley, with a stellar reputation for premium wines. A higher altitude and cooler climate lends itself well to Riesling and Chardonnay.
Unlike us, wine really doesn't enjoy traveling. If you've picked up a few treasured bottles, don't leave them in the car on a warm day! Many cellar doors offer specialist international wine transport services to make sure your precious cargo gets home safely.
Join the hustle and bustle of the Barossa Farmers' Market, held in the Vintners Sheds near Angaston. There are more than 30 stalls to wander through, with the freshest local produce available.
Explore Maggie Beer's Farm Shop. One of Australia's most loved cooks, Maggie and husband Colin have created a collection of all things culinary. Tastings are available, as well as rare produce, and cooking demonstrations.
