With 150 wineries, more than 70 cellar doors, high-quality cuisine and luxury accommodation, it’s no wonder visitors from all over the world are drawn to the Barossa Valley. It is in the Barossa Valley where you can taste wine from your birth year (even all the way back to 1878) at Seppeltsfield. It’s also in the Barossa Valley where you can taste Penfolds Grange by the glass, probably the most iconic wine in Australia.
You can get a behind-the-scenes experience at large scale wineries you might recognise from your local supermarket and see how their wine is made. Test your wine making skills at Jacobs Creek winery and blend your signature wine.
If you’re looking for fresh produce and artisanal food to pair with your wine, visit the region’s weekly Farmers Market on Saturday mornings or enjoy a scrumptious lunch in one of the countless restaurants in the valley.
While you can easily self drive to the Barossa Valley, sit back and enjoy one of the high-quality wine tours from Adelaide that include transport, so you can enjoy sampling wines without having to keep in mind the legal limit. Our team is happy to help find the right guide for you.
If you need more time to explore the Barossa Valley, stay over! Choose from budget-friendly motels or luxurious wine retreats that overlook the vineyards. At The Louise, you can relax in spacious comfort, experience pure indulgent luxury and sophisticated contemporary design.
