Famous around the world for producing the finest Shiraz and Riesling, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s most significant and acclaimed wine regions. As a popular tourist destination, the Barossa Valley is jam-packed with everything from boutique wineries to internationally recognised brand names making it one of the world’s great wine regions.
Wine has been a way of life in Barossa since 1842. Fast forward to today, and Barossa is home to more than 550 grape growing families, many with the sixth generation still working the same plot of land, supplying quality grapes to more than 170 wine companies.
The best Barossan wines sit comfortably alongside the great wines of the world. Barossa Shiraz and Eden Valley Riesling have led the way as regional heroes, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro, Grenache, Semillon and Fortifieds wines all contributing to Barossa’s standing as one of the world’s great wine regions.
Barossa incorporates both the Barossa Valley and Eden Valleys, making it one of the only wine regions in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. With such a diversity of growing conditions and soil types across both valleys, and vineyards that have been tended by hand for many generations, you are bound to find a wine to call your own.
