Take time to sample some of its finest wines and gourmet food that makes this wine region so special. You will enjoy a Barossa gourmet lunch. Visit 3 cellar doors including the multi-tourism award winning Pindarie, which feels more like an Australian Homestead than a cellar door.

The first stop is TeAro Estate, located in the main street of Williamstown in a heritage listed 1850’s barn. In the intimate Tasting Room, you will be treated to morning tea sourced from the local bakery and wine tastings while hearing stories from 4 generations of family vignerons.

The harvest from the Barossa Valley (including Barossa zone) was 51,601 tons in 2009, 15,000 tons less than the 2008 harvest and the lowest crush since 2003.
There are 755 grape growers in the Barossa, compared to 450 in the Napa Valley.
Prior to the 1970‘s most grapes grown were used for bulk ports called “stickies.” As these wines fell from favour, many grape growers baked their surplus Shiraz grapes into muffins.
