The Barossa Valley region is responsible for bringing Australian wine to the world stage in the 1970s, captivating wine lovers with its full-bodied reds. Shiraz is often seen as the shining star of the Barossa – and rightly so, it’s delicious – but varieties such as cabernet sauvignon, grenache and semillon are all making their mark as well.
Mediterranean-style climate with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters.
