Barossa Valley, Australia

  • Monday, Day 28/09/2020
  • With a rich winemaking and grape growing heritage dating back to 1842, and a profound and unique Silesian (German) influence, the Barossa Valley is arguably Australia's most famous wine region. The region is a unique and precious resource, home to some of the oldest vines in the world. In some families, there have been six generations of grape growers and winemakers. This tradition extends to a vibrant and renowned community of artisan food producers. Many of these families have been perfecting their craft for as long as the grape growers and winemakers. The climate is ideal for full bodied red wines, fortified wines and robust white wines. The two soil types are relatively low in fertility. The Barossa region produces a great variety of wine, with the main styles being Riesling, Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre and Cabernet Sauvignon.
