Craft breweries, gin distilleries, chocolatiers and local cheese makers also add to the experience of what the Adelaide Hills has to offer.
Ranked alongside Bordeaux, Napa and Tuscany the Barossa Valley is recognised as one of the world’s great wine regions. Around a 70 minute drive from the Adelaide’s CBD you will be in the Barossa where you can explore the history of the early Germanic settlers to this area. The Barossa offers a diverse range of wine styles, specialising in Riesling, Shiraz, and regional hero’s such as Grenache, Mataro, Viognier, Semillon and fortified wines. There is a very strong food culture offered, with places like Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop, Fino at Seppeltsfield, Hentley Farm and Vintners Bar & Grill just to name a few. Or you could enjoy a regional platter or pizza offered by many cellar doors.
You may wish to indulge yourself and taste the world-renowned Grange. Penfolds Barossa offer the ultimate tasting including the ‘ Taste of Grange Experience’ (duration 1 hour at 2pm daily – tasting fees apply).
To put it simply the Barossa has it all!

Regarded as one of the best-kept secrets in Australian viticulture, Langhorne Creek offers one of Australia’s oldest and most significant wine regions in our land. Founded in the 1850’s and influenced by the local Bremer and Angas Rivers flood plain, this region is unique in many ways.
Fresh, cool evening breezes from Lake Alexandrina provide a micro climate of warm summer days and cool evenings, perfect for the long ripening of grapes, producing intense and sought after cool climate flavours.
In particular, at the home of the 2019 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy Winner – Langhorne Creek’s Bleasdale Vineyard offer visitors Cellar Door tastings and historical tours that showcase the famous 1892 – 3.2 tonne red gum lever basket press, which operated for over 70 years.
