While the Barossa is well known for its German influences, Greenock has a decidedly Scottish flair and was once known as ‘Little Scotland’ thanks to the many Scottish immigrants who called this lovely village home. Renowned throughout the Barossa for its strong community spirit and energetic volunteer committees, Greenock is a vibrant, friendly village.
A number of premium winemakers can be found in Greenock. Kalleske Wines is one of small number of certified organic producers in the Barossa, and use both organic and biodynamic practices in their vineyards. Ballycroft Vineyards and Cellars is a new addition to the Barossa’s cellar door scene and Murray Street Vineyards is home to one of the most popular cellar doors in the Barossa region.
In addition to the high quality wine offering, visitors can also book a cooking class with famous Barossa chef Mark McNamara who now runs the popular Food Luddite Cooking School from a charming heritage cottage just off the main village green. A short stroll away is Greenock Brewers which draws on Greenock’s long tradition as a grain trading centre by housing their micro-brewery in an 1860’s wheat store. A number of high quality accommodation options means you can happily spend a little more time exploring this beautiful corner of the Barossa.
