Tasting the heritage of the Barossa


The Barossa owes most of it's character to German settlers who began arriving back as far as the 1840s. The area contains the wine regions of Barossa Valley, with it's main towns of Nuriootpa, Tanunda, Angaston and Lyndoch, as well as Eden Valley with it's villages of Eden Valley and Springton. The Barossa hosts Australia's largest and longest running wine festival (since 1947) the 'Barossa Vintage Festival', which is held every two years in March-April. The popular 'Barossa Gourmet Weekend', held annually in August, is a "feast of food and wine experiences". Produce from the Eden Valley area is available from 'Taste Eden Valley' in Angaston.

Eddie McDougall's Barossa Valley Favourites

Author: Eddie McDougall

Created 12th Jan, 2016

These two Barossa Valley wineries are not far apart - so you better give them a visit!

Rockford Wines: An oldie but a goodie. The super premium iconic winemaker from the Barossa Valley is still one of the Australia’s most highly regarded. A collection of Riesling, Semillon, Shiraz and Cabernet blends make up the stellar collection of wines available to sample and buy at their historic winery and cellar door. Don't expect to find a flashy facility with lots of stainless steel tanks and high-speed machines. Instead, prepare to travel back in time as this winery is all about winemaking with old school processing and old vineyards. Try the Basket Press Shiraz. 

Charles Melton: A small but an exceptional winemaker of the Rhone blends (Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro). The Nine Pope wine is one of Charles' most awarded and preferred by all the critics, and of course is also my personal favourite. The cellar door experience is very intimate, cosy and educational. If you walk in during winter, expect the log fire to be burning whilst you sample some warming red wines produced from one of the superstars of the region.

Bethany to Angaston Trail...discover more of the Barossa. This trail brings to you our little community from Bethany (near Tanunda) to the hills of Angaston – where we go to for that amazing shiraz, cheeky little riesling, fresh & fabulous produce straight from the farm, Friday knock-off beer – where we take our own visitors when they come to town & where we send them to rest their weary heads at night when there’s no more room at home. There will always be something new here – news, events, photos, the general goings-on of the places you can find along the trail – in our own voices. Join us & be consumed by our community – the true character of the Barossa:


Best of Barossa Wine & Food

This beautiful valley, with it's rich German heritage, has been a special place to grow things since the 1800s. Accumulated wisdom over the years resulted in knowledge of what crops did particularly well and those less so. Vines stood out for their particular affinity for this location, but other produce and animal raising also flourished. Six of the eight producers on this trail are winemakers which reflects the ancestry of the Barossa. The Maggie Beer's Farm shows what a wide range of produce is possible in this area. At Lyndoch you can appreciate how well lavender can be fused with everyday foods.
