Spend a day exploring the Barossa and tasting world-class wines and some of the best food in South Australia.

An hour’s drive from Adelaide City is the Barossa Valley, one of the most famous wine regions in the world. The Barossa Valley is known for some of the world’s best shiraz!

1. Tanunda

Tanunda is in the heart of the Barossa and has some of the best wineries and restaurants. Great restaurants to visit for a delicious lunch or dinner include 1918 Bistro & Grill or Char Barossa.

One of the main wineries to visit is Chateau Tanunda, the Barossa’s first winery! The building itself is spectacular and here lie some of the Barossa’s first vines planted.

2. Angaston

Angaston is another main town in the Barossa that has markets, bustling cafes, restaurants, and of course wineries. Some of the top wineries to visit include Saltram Wine Estate, Lambert Estate Wines, and Yalumba.

Every Saturday the Barossa Farmers’ Market is open with fresh food like vegetables, fruit, breads, and meats.

3. Nuriootpa

Nuriootpa has beautiful 19th-century buildings and some of the best food to enjoy in the Barossa.

While in Nuriootpa, there are a few must-visit wineries to go to for a wine tasting. Make sure you check out Penfolds Barossa Valley Cellar Door and Elderton Wines.

Other honourable towns to mention include Bethany (the oldest town in the Barossa), Lyndoch, and Greenock. You can check out a few of these towns on a Barossa Valley wine tour where you go to selected wineries in the area for wine tastings!
