The Barossa Valley is Australia’s quintessential wine region, with some of the world’s oldest vines producing some super stellar vintages.

It goes without saying that yes, Barossa wine is very good. When you consider that the likes of Chateau Tanunda, Hewitson, Seppeltsfield and Yalumba all call this fertile South Australian region home, it is safe to say that Barossa wine is pretty palatable!

What makes Barossa wine even better is venturing to the region to enjoy some of its fine vintages and scrumptious produce, as where there is fine wine there is always fine food.

Let’s take a look at some of the experiences that make the Barossa a favourite for wine lovers and holiday makers alike:

Wine tour, duh!

The Barossa Valley is a place where the wine is fine and so are the times, making it the ideal place to get your mates together for a spot of winery hopping. Whether you have a deso or book a party bus it doesn’t matter – you are in for a joyous day tasting some of the country’s finest wine.

Choose your itinerary based on the wines you would like to try or the spots you would like to visit – the likes of Seppeltsfield, Kalleske and Whistler Wines all boast gorgeous wineries with the cellar door experiences to match!

Maggie Beer Farm Shop

The name Maggie Beer alone is an Australian institution, with cooking shows, delightful condiments and a wondrous farm shop all attributed to this Aussie legend.

The Maggie Beer Farm Shop is a Barossa favourite, with everything from her wonderful products to cooking classes and verjuice making demonstrations on the menu. What’s more, you can even stay in the simply elegant farmhouse located on the property – it’s the Barossa dream!

Hot air balloon rides

The Barossa Valley – like most global wine regions – is utterly gorgeous. The sublime series of rolling vineyards and sumptuous fields makes for the perfect place for a spot of hot air ballooning, just be sure you haven’t haven’t got too stuck into the wines beforehand – you might have to take a quick detour to the Berocca Valley if so!


The indulgence theme continues and why not? It is B-Val after all. The food is fabulous and with plenty of different cuisine styles on offer you can be sure you will find yourself dining out.

fermentAsian, the Hentley Farm Cellar Door and 1918 Bistro and Grill are a few of our favourites – enjoy!
