The Barossa Experience
You told us the Barossa was your favourite wine region last year so we’ve brought them back and bigger that ever at this year’s show!
Wine has been a way of life in Barossa since 1842. Fast forward to today, and Barossa is home to more than 550 grape growing families, many with the sixth generation still working the same plot of land, supplying quality grapes to more than 170 wine companies.
The best Barossan wines sit comfortably alongside the great wines of the world. Barossa Shiraz and Eden Valley Riesling have led the way as regional heroes, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro, Grenache, Semillon and Fortifieds wines all contributing to Barossa’s standing as one of the world’s great wine regions.
Barossa incorporates both Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, making it one of the only areas in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. With such a diversity of growing conditions and soil types across both valleys, and vineyards that have been tended by hand for many generations, you are bound to find a wine to call your own.
Visit the Barossa Experience at the Good Food & Wine Show, where 16 of the region’s best wineries will come together to welcome you to taste your way around their world renowned wines. Find out which wineries will be attending here.
