3 Vineyards
You Must Visit in the
Barossa Valley

South Australia is home to some of the best wineries that Australia has to offer. With seemingly never-ending rows of grapevines etched into the rolling hills and valleys, the Barossa Valley is a truly beautiful destination.

Destination: The Barossa Valley

Home to some of the country’s finest Shiraz, Riesling, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon, the Barossa Valley is touted by many to be the most famous wine region in Australia.

Located only 70 kilometres from the centre of Adelaide, this stunning wine country can be accessed easily by hiring a minibus in Adelaide. With an estimated 50 wineries in the region, the best way to enjoy the area is to choose a few of the best wineries, grab a couple friends and arrange for someone else to do the driving so you can relax and enjoy the day. Hiring a minibus in Adelaide is one of the most popular ways to reach the Barossa Valley, especially if you want to see as much as you can in a short amount of time.

South Australia is home to some of the best wineries that Australia has to offer – The Barossa Valley being one of the most beautiful.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular ‘must-visit’ vineyards in the Barossa Valley that should be on everyone’s list.

A selection of Jacob’s Creek wines – produced in The Barossa Valley since 1847.

1. Jacob’s Creek

Set inside a beautiful 42 hectares site, the Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre should not be missed. There are scenic bike tracks that criss-cross through the vineyards, you can taste some of the wine that has been produced here since 1847 or you can take part in the 4-hour Jacob’s Creek Cooking Class that takes place in a beautiful outdoor kitchen.

If bike riding and cooking are not your idea of a fun afternoon, you can sit back and relax at the ‘Our Table’ restaurant and enjoy views of the Barossa Range while dining on specialties comprised of locally produced ingredients.

2. Seppeltsfield

When you organise your minibus charter in Adelaide, be sure to instruct your driver to stop at Seppeltsfield. As the recipient of the ‘Best of Wine Tourism 2017’ award, Seppeltsfield offers a range of experiences and tours with something for everyone’s taste. Have a true fine-dining experience at their Fino restaurant or purchase some local cheese and wine from the café and unwind in the garden.

Seppeltsfield has some unique experiences such as the ‘Taste Your Birth Year Tour’ where you can sample wine from the year you were born.  Otherwise the ‘Straight from the barrel’ and the ‘World War I Tour’, where you can taste wines from 1914 through to 1918.

Seppeltsfield is the only winery in the world that releases a 100-year old single vintage wine each and every year, so make sure you don’t forget to tell your minibus hire company that this stop is not optional!

Some of the best experiences are the ‘Taste Your Birth Year Tour’ where you can sample wine from the year you were born, straight from the barrel.
