    I personally think Barossa Valley is the best-known wine-producing region in Australia. It's a beautiful, well-tended area with over 100 wine producers, around 70 of which encourage casual visits for tasting and cellar sales. As a result I decided to write a blog post able to fully appreciate the area.

     

    The Barossa Valley, less than an hour from Adelaide, is an area of softly rolling hills forming shallow fertile valleys which combine with the perfect South Australian Mediterranean climate to produce one of the best wine producing regions in Australia: Barossa Valley Shiraz, one of the country’s most identifiable and famous red wine styles. Wines are traditionally vinified in open concrete fermenters before being cleaned up & finished in American & french oak barrels/puncheons of approx 600 litres. Barossa Shiraz is rich, spicy & suave with hints of leather & pepper.

     

     

    The Barossa Valley is also a popular Australian holiday destination due to beautiful countryside, picturesque villages and excellent food and wine.

    The Barossa Valley is a working wine region in every sense of the word.

    Cosy restaurants, cellar doors, hotels and resorts seamlessly blend in with vineyards and the business of producing top quality wine.



    These are often combined with the tourism experience enabling you to both taste the product and learn something about making wine from grape cultivation to fermentation, blending, storing, labelling and bottling.
