Sip back and enjoy some of South Australia’s finest wine and produce
There’s something wholesome about drinking a glass of Shiraz in the same vineyard it came from, or knowing the food on your plate grew in the paddock over the road. Barossa Valley is arguably Australia’s best-known red wine region, with over 150 wineries dotted throughout its sun-soaked vineyards. Combine two of life’s best things — nature and wine — on a cycling adventure through three distinct regions, or experience a little bit of everything on our Best of South Australia trip.

Barossa Valley is most famous for its deep, bold red wine varieties including Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. Other popular varieties include Riesling, Semillon and Chardonnay.
Barossa Valley experiences a mild climate similar to the Mediterranean, which is what makes it such an amazing place to grow grapes. It typically has cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers with plenty of sunshine. Autumn days are balmy and dry with cool nights, while spring is mild and sunny.
