Barossa and Clare Valley

The Barossa is one of Australia’s most famous wine regions, spoken in the same breath as Bordeaux, Napa and Tuscany. It’s not only about the wine though - here you’ll find a flourishing food culture, historic villages and picturesque valleys.

The Clare Valley, located about two hours north of Adelaide, is one of our most scenic wine regions. The landscape blends Australian bush and charming vineyards. There are more than 40 cellar doors to visit and plenty of other activities if visitors choose to stay a couple of nights.
