Barossa is arguably the single most famous wine region in Australia. Yet within this its 200 million year old landscape, dramatically varied topography, geology and climate ensure vastly contrasting wine styles.
The Barossa Valley was formed by the North Para River and was named by Colonel William Light in 1837.
The Eden Valley shares its western boundary with the Barossa Valley. The region is of similar size to the Barossa Valley and is well known for making high quality Riesling and Shiraz wines.
The geological development of the Coonawarra as a premium winegrowing region had its roots when the region was submerged by the waters of the Great Southern Ocean.
Wrattonbully lies between the Coonawarra and Padthaway viticultural regions and is one Australia’s newer planted regions as grapes only began to be extensively planted from the mid 1990’s.
South Australia is home to 18 recognised grape growing regions. All defined by Geographical Indications they are defined by specific regional boundaries. Yalumba sources from 10 of the 18 regions for our everyday wines.
