Barossa Valley

divider smalll

The Barossa Valley is a world-renowned wine region – and for good reason!

Whether you live locally, interstate or overseas, most people have heard of the Barossa and the many treasures that can be found there.

It is steeped in rich history dating back almost 200 years – and not all of it due to the outstanding wines the region produces.

What isn’t as well known is that it was actually named in error – it was meant to be named Barrosa (two r’s and only one s) – not Barossa – by Colonel William Light in 1837.

Colonel Light is said to have chosen the name in memory of the British victory over the French in the Battle of Barrosa – in which he fought in 1811.

But alas a clerical error had the region named Barossa instead – and as they say, the rest is history.

Since its origins, the Barossa Valley has had a very strong German influence due to many of the early settlers who settled there having recently fled their home country for various reasons and saw this as their new start.

To this very day you can still see very strong remnants of the German influence in the Barossa Valley and its surrounds.

One of the many advantages of the Barossa is its close proximity to the Adelaide CBD – about an hour by road.

This allows people only wanting a day trip from Adelaide to still experience the many wineries – and other sites – in the area and then return home at the end of the day.

But for those wanting to indulge themselves longer and perhaps stay for a overnight, or for a weekend – or even longer – these are a range of accommodation available to suit any budget.

The region is home to about 170 wineries and about 87 cellar doors business so fair to say, there is something for everyone’s taste.

“The Barossa Valley never ceases to amaze me,” Nev said.

“I have been taking people on wine tours in the Valley for more than five (???) years now, and I always stumble upon something new – whether that’s a new winery, boutique brewery or distillery, or a new restaurant – the Barossa never fails to impress ,” he said.

“That’s what I believe is part of the uniqueness of the region – and part of the reason it is a world-renowned wine region.”
