The Barossa Valley has been acknowledged as having the best wine tourism in Australia after taking out this prestigious award through Australian Gourmet Traveller.
The award was announced at the Crown Conservatory in Melbourne last Wednesday night in the seventh annual travel awards.
Australian Gourmet Traveller described the Barossa Valley as a recipe for a great wine region.
“Take seven generations of European settlers, mix together their distinctive cultures, season with a shared passion for viniculture, and roll them out over a sweep of painterly landscapes.
“The Barossa might be best known for producing some of the finest shiraz on the planet, but it is one of Australia’s most diverse (and enchanting) food and wine regions.
