Lyndoch is an old country town that makes some of the best wines in the world.

Chateau Yaldara

In the heart of the Barossa Valley is the town of Lyndoch, an hour’s drive from Adelaide City. The town is between two other popular Barossa towns, Gawler, and Tanunda.

We certainly think Lyndoch is worth the visit to enjoy the wineries, amazing food, and scenic views of the rolling vineyards.
