Barossa is widely regarded by international wine writers, judges, retailers and consumers as Australia’s most famous wine region. Why?
It has the longest unbroken lineage of winemaking and grape growing families in the country, some entering their seventh generation. It has been the headquarters of innovation and production since the early 1900s.
It is home to Australia’s most unique varietal style – Barossa Shiraz – and its most premium and sought-after embodiments: among them Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace.
While Shiraz is our hero red variety, Riesling is our hero white variety, where its place is firmly entrenched in Eden Valley.
Barossa is home to over 40 wine grape varieties, each with its own character, reflecting the hand of the grower and the winemaker.
