Where is it? 70km north-east of Adelaide, SA.
An hour’s drive from Adelaide, the Barossa may as well be a 20-hour plane ride away, its European heritage is that strong. The original settlers from Britain, Prussia and Silesia (now Poland) brought vines from their homelands, and thus Australia’s most internationally recognised wine region was born. Six generations of wine growers have since lived and thrived here. Head over in April for the Barossa Vintage Festival, where you’ll be overloaded with local wine and produce prepared by local chefs, and all done in a true European manner – with the philosophy “eat more, drink more, enjoy!”
