Region

​The Barossa Valley is a renowned wine-producing region northeast of Adelaide, in South Australia. The area encompasses towns such as Tanunda, Angaston and Nuriootpa, and has a fantastic array of wineries, cafes and eateries renowned for the region.  The stone cottages architecture throughout the region are testament to origins of its German settlers.
