About the Barossa Trust Mark
The Barossa Trust Mark is the first program of its kind in Australia. An independently assessed mark of quality and integrity, it represents the best of Barossa across a full range of food, wine and tourism experiences. Holders of a Barossa Trust Mark have something to be very proud of - a Trust Mark should be celebrated!
