Barossa Valley

It may be the granddaddy of Australia’s wine regions, but for foodies, wine buffs and romantics, the Barossa Valley shows no sign of getting old.

From the moment German settlers pitched their vines here in the early 19th century, Barossa Valley has been on the viticultural map. A neat daytrip from Adelaide, Barossa Valley presents a full itinerary of vineyard tours, wine tastings, cellar door sessions and perfect pairings. As they say, it’s better not to keep things bottled up, so pour yourself a glass of some of Australia’s finest. Historic cottages and vine-laced estates set the stage for fabulous dining and accommodation in the Barossa Valley.
