Barossa Valley Wineries

It's great to visit Barossa Valley wineries.

Barossa Valley north of Adelaide in South Australia is the most famous wine district in Australia.


The first settlers in the area weren’t wine makers but Germans who left behind the churches and Germanic place names. The region has been producing wines for 160 years, and a quarter of Australian wines come from here. Here is some information about Barossa Valley, and in the end of the page is a Barossa Valley map.

Eden Valley and Tours to Barossa Valley Wineries
A fair way south is Eden Valley with Eden Valley Wines and some nice old buildings. Because the distances in Barossa Valley are not exactly walkable, you will need some sort of transport. It’s not a good idea to drive around yourself, because after a few winery visits you are over the limit. There are tours that take your here from Adelaide and do all the driving for you.
