South Australia is home to award-winning wine, events and festivals. In fact, we've been named Australia's best festival state two years in a row. It's also the gateway to world-famous wine regions such as the Barossa and McLaren Vale, and Adelaide has been listed as one of the Great Wine Capitals of the World.
There’s something very special about the Barossa. You can feel it in the landscape, in the people, the food and the wine. It’s a beautiful region, with villages, vineyards and farms dotting a patchwork vista. Barossans are famous for their generous hospitality, their love of a shared table and their passion for local food and wine. Festivals, celebrations, markets and music thrive here. Barossa is life’s great pleasures, in one unique place.
