Wine has been a way of life
Wine has been a way of life in the Barossa since 1842. Fast forward to today, and the 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 wineries.
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 Fortified wines all contributing to the Barossa’s standing as one of the world’s great wine regions.
”South Australia’s Barossa Valley is arguably Australia’s most famous wine region, and for good reason. The area boasts a vinous history dating back more than 170 years and it is home to some of Australia’s oldest surviving vines.”
JAMES HALLIDAY | AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION
”There is nothing in the world like the extraordinary Shiraz and Grenache wines from Barossa. While the most sought-after are undeniably expensive (they’re made in tiny quantities from ancient vines), they are huge, rich and concentrated, and represent some of planet Earth’s most compelling wines.”
