The Barossa On Your Doorstep
The Barossa is one of the world’s finest wine-growing regions, mentioned in the same breath as Bordeaux, Napa and Tuscany.
Now at the heart of the Australian wine industry, the rolling valleys and fertile plains of the Barossa were first noted in the 1830s for their extraordinary potential. In 1842 communities of Prussian émigrés were brought into the region to establish a little of the ‘old world’ in the new. As was their tradition, a few began to grow vines…
Today, their influence, their culture and indeed their extraordinary wine-making skills can still be seen in the historic settlements of this beautiful region – in towns like Bethany, Tanunda and Angaston. Not unrelated, the region supports an exquisite food culture, one which shows proper respect to the notions of pure ingredients, artisan production and careful appreciation.
