FOOD, COFFEE, WINE
While the Barossa has an unbroken grape and winemaking lineage since the early 1840's, home to the oldest shiraz vines in the world, growers and winemakers are on a constant mission of innovation. But it's not all about the wine with distillers, breweries and coffee roasters now staking their claim and producing award winning blends and beverages, plus restaurants, cafes and providores filled with delicacies and traditional food. To eat in the Barossa is to experience for yourself the heritage of the region come to life. With a diverse and vibrant dining scene, where local produce takes centre stage there really is so much to taste and discover.
If you like fine dining and want to taste some of the famous Barossa drops then look no further than Hentley Farm, Vintners Bar and Grill or fermentAsian, followed by gin or wine tasting at Seppeltsfield and Penfolds cellar doors.
Need to make a pit stop and refuel? Octeine has got you. This boutique roastery offers celebrated brews, and healthy food perfect for those on the go. Seppeltsfield wines and local beers are on offer, plus the best Barossa Cider Co. selections.
