Barossa Valley Tours

With its idyllic vineyards, charming villages, and green hills, the Barossa Valley is the picturesque heart of South Australia’s wine country. A popular day trip from nearby Adelaide, this is the place to sip award-winning wines, cycle through the countryside, and tuck into delicious regional cuisine.

The Basics
It’s no surprise that wine tasting is the most popular activity in the Barossa Valley given that more than 200 wineries and cellar doors are open to the public. There are plenty of options for wine tasting tours from Adelaide—take in the scenery of the beautiful Barossa Valley, River Torrens, and Adelaide Hills; soar over the vines on a romantic hot air balloon flight; or visit the historic town of Hahndorf. Those looking for the best value can combine wine tasting with a sightseeing tour of Adelaide, while others wanting a personalized experience can choose a small-group or private tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The legal drinking age of 18 applies for all wine tasting in the Barossa Valley.
  • Most Barossa Valley wineries do not have a dress code, but smart-casual dress is required at the region’s upmarket restaurants.
  • Cell phone coverage can vary throughout the Barossa Valley, but free Wi-Fi is available at the Barossa Valley Visitor Centre.
  • Sunscreen and comfortable shoes are a must if you plan on walking through the vineyards.
  • Many Barossa Valley wineries are wheelchair accessible, although tours of the vineyards are not always possible. Check in advance to avoid disappointment.

How to Get to the Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley is located 43 miles (70 kilometers) northeast of Adelaide, about an hour’s drive. Buses from Adelaide run to Angaston, Nuriootpa, and Tanunda, but it’s best to join a guided tour to visit multiple wineries and take part in tastings.

When to Get There
The best time of year for Barossa Valley wine tours is December through February, during harvest season. This is a popular time, so book ahead for tastings. Note that temperatures can reach up to 85°F (30°C) in summer. It’s possible to visit Barossa wineries year-round—spring and autumn can be cooler and ideal for walking and cycling tours, while winter offers cheaper prices on accommodations and activities. 

Barossa Valley Wines
The Barossa Valley wine region is home to some of Australia’s most popular varietals, including some from big names such as Penfolds, Henschke Cellars, Wolf Blass, and Jacob's Creek. Wine lovers can sample award-winning shiraz wines and discover the legendary vintage wines at Seppeltsfield winery. Other varieties include cabernet sauvignon, grenache, merlot, riesling, sémillon, and chardonnay.
