Winter in the Barossa
Winter provides an absolutely stunning backdrop in the Barossa. The crisp, cool air lingers as the frost settles on vineyards and the rolling green hills provide the perfect backdrop to rows of freshly pruned vines, and there's nothing more breathtaking than early morning fog hovering over the vineyards.
With an abundance of cosy cellar doors, warming winter fires and indulgent food and wine options to feed your soul we really can't think of a better way to fend off the winter blues. Don't let the cold weather deter you! Winter in Barossa is wonderful. If you've only talked about visiting Barossa, there is no better time. Warm up in Barossa this winter and take advantage of some hot accommodation deals. Or why not visit our cellar doors where you can peel off your many 'winter' layers and sit back and relax by the fireplace with a glass of Barossa wine or fortified, guaranteed to warm you up from the inside out.
