Barossa Valley: region
One of Australia's oldest wine regions
South Australia, Australia
Mediterranean warm climate
Number of wineries
Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache

Growing some of the oldest vines in the world, it is no wonder the Barossa Valley region has such an extraordinarily rich wine heritage. This valley has been home to grape-growing families since 1842 and many plots of land are still being worked by sixth-generation growers to produce the world-famous red wine varieties. Whilst the bold Barossa Valley Shiraz is undeniably the regional hero and comfortably sits amongst the world's great wines, this region also continuously produces premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache vines. Barossa is the wider area made up of two sub-regions; the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley however despite their proximity, these regions produce distinctly different styles of wine.

About an hour’s drive northeast from Adelaide, the Barossa Valley has a predominantly warm, Mediterranean climate with some cooler vineyards in the surrounding higher elevated hills. With such a diversity of growing climates, the Barossa Valley wine landscape is today one of the exciting new innovations as historical producers work alongside new arrivals to experiment with bold new moves.
