It’s true to say that you’ll never find a bad wine in the Barossa Valley - but some wines will appeal more than others.
The taste buds of the Barossa’s legion of fine wine-makers carry forward the region’s rich heritage each vintage and collectively make the Barossa Valley Australia’s premier wine region.
But now new technology is enabling wine connoisseurs no matter what their experience to place themselves in the wine-makers’ red shoes to blend their very own wines - albeit with the willing help of some of the finest taste buds in the Barossa - at Jacob’s Creek.....
If you'd like to take part in this unique experience, you'd better get your skates on - the Blend unit will be moving on in October. Why not get to Jacob's Creek on the October long weekend - but get your audio tour of the history and provenance of the Barossa - and our audio on the Cellar Door experience (which also features Bernard Hickin) to enhance your Barossa Valley experience. Get to the Barossa via Williamstown (the prettiest way to get to the Barossa) - and get your tours at the Baker St Bakery in the main street of Williamstown!
The Nation’s premier wine and food tourist region, South Australia’s stunning Barossa Valley, is emerging from its long winter sleep and beginning its stunning transformation from bare browns to lush green as countless vines awaken and welcome the warm spring sun.
‘Bud burst’ is now happening across the Valley - some areas faster than others - as vineyard after vineyard shrug off the cold of a mild winter and charge toward a new and exciting vintage.
This is the time to plan your first visit - or return visit - to the wine region which stands head and shoulders over the rest. Follow the footsteps of the German winemakers and take in the vistas which envigorated them all those years ago and whose labours made the Barossa simply the best.
Get to the Barossa and savour the sun of years past - now encapsulated in delightful vintages stretching back over decades. Sit on the terraces with the ghosts of Australia's finest winemakers and complement their fine wines with Barossa fine foods as you contemplate vintages to come.
