The Barossa is one of Australia’s most famous wine regions. On your Barossa holiday, encounter winemakers waiting to share their secrets at the cellar door; landscapes etched with manicured vineyards; passionate food producers proffering their wares at country markets; and grand chateaux surrounded by ornate gardens.
The Barossa was established by European farmers and English free settlers who made the place home from the 1850s. You”ll get a taste of their rich cultural legacy in superb Barossa specialty foods, dozens of festivals, events, historic architecture, inspiring arts and antique galleries.
Wake up in the Barossa. Spend the night in a restored settler’s cottage, a resort suite, a luxurious country house or a shady caravan park. Sample German wursts and cakes in heritage bakeries and butcher stores. Follow the Barossa”s Butcher, Baker, Winemaker Trail.
Home of Australian wine:
Drive amongst vineyards tended by the Barossa’s 500 grape growing families (many sixth-generation). Stop at tiny boutique wineries or have your photo taken beside the real Jacob”s Creek. 60 sensational cellar doors are household names, like Peter Lehmann, Henschke, Seppelt, Yaldara and Yalumba.
Barossa Farmers’ Market:
The Barossa Farmers’ Market is held every Saturday morning from 7.30am to 11.30am. It has real food from the homes and farms of the Barossa. It”s located just behind Vintners Bar and Grill near Angaston. It’s a food only market and reflects the heritage and traditions of the region.
The Barossa has a calendar of events, large and small. The biennial vintage festival celebrates the harvest in every town. Barossa Under the Stars features a top international performer (past stars include Rod Stewart and Elton John). The Barossa Gourmet Weekend unites cooks, chefs and restaurants with wineries to present the best of each.
