Find the Best of Barossa
Whether you want a day-trip from Adelaide focused on tastings at top wineries or you’re interested in a multi-day experience tailored to your tastes, Diverse Travel will make your journey to Australia’s Great Wine Capital special.
The old-world feeling of Adelaide, with its elegant Victorian architecture, leafy boulevards, superb markets, and sweet cafés, always surprises visitors. That low-key charm, along with the city’s great restaurants and elegant hotels make this wine capital the perfect starting point for delving into Australian food, wine, and culture.
There are 18 wine regions and hundreds of wineries to explore not far from the city. One we love is the Barossa—home of some of the oldest shiraz vineyards in the world. Old varieties and innovative wine styles come together here beautifully, not only in its full-bodied Shiraz’s but also in award-winning Rieslings, Cabernet Sauvignons, and 100-year old fortified wines.
You’ll definitely want to take the time for tastings. The wineries of the Barossa always offer a warm welcome. Some of them even offer hands on experiences like blending your own wine. The “cellar doors”—that’s Australian for winery visits and tastings—will charm you.
Part of what makes touring the Barossa special is the way that, among the vineyards, you come upon historic hamlets, too. Driving village to village, you’ll want to stop to stroll and sample everything farmers, cheesemakers, and other artisans produce here.
