Barossa is arguably the single most famous wine region in Australia. Yet within this 200 million year old landscape, dramatically varied topography, geology and climate ensure vastly contrasting wine styles.
The Barossa includes both Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, making it one of the only areas in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. Home to approximately 13,000 hectares of vineyards, the Barossa is most well-known for Shiraz, as well as Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling and Semillon.
Yalumba is privileged to have access to some of the oldest vineyards in the world. Taking this privilege seriously, Yalumba established the Old Vine Charter; dedicated to the recognition, preservation and promotion of these beautiful vineyards.
