The Barossa Valley is Australia's best known and most historic wine region. The region produces some of the country's finest wines, with names such as Rockford, Penfolds, Seppelt, Yalumba, and Peter Lehmann all based in the Barossa.

Other varieties grown include Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Semillon, Riesling and Viognier.
