    Barossa Valley

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visiting the Barossa wineries is a must-do activity for anyone visiting this part of the World. There are many trips available, mainly day trips as it is less than 50k from Adelaide. Familiar names like Penfolds and Jacobs Creek are encountered here. Also look out for elements of the historical German heritage, in street names, architecture (particularly churches) and the odd wurst shop.

    Artwork inside Peter Lehmann

    The observant amongst you will recognise the artwork signature of their Cabernet Sauvignon. Peter Lehmann makes consistently good Shiraz and it was their Barossa Valley Shiraz that introduced me to wines of very fine tannins. I thought James Halliday was a little harsh on rating his Shiraz but try it, it is as smooth as butter. Forget Clancy's or the Grenache, just go for the straight Shiraz.

    If you like wine at all, get to the Barossa Valley

    The Barossa Valley is one of the most famous wine producing areas of Australia. It is also the most prolific -- 1/3 of all Aussie wines are made here.

    There are 50+ wineries to visit, most of which are open to the public for tastings. Head out on the main highway and watch for winery signs. They are very well marked.

    The Barossa Valley was originally settled by German immigrants, and you'll find that a lot of the wines reflect this - rieslings, gewurtraminiers, etc. You can check out the history of the immigrants and the area at the Barossa Historical Society Museum in Tanunda - (08) 8563-0507.

    The Menglers hill lookout gives superb views across the Barossa valley. Just ignore the plaster of paris sculptures nearby.
