’55 km northeast of Adelaide, this wide valley is the most famous of Australia’s wine regions, particularly for its Shiraz.’
The region is also rich in Germanic atmosphere. The settlement began in 1842, when immigrants from Silesia and Prussia brought their knowledge of wine and their traditions, as evidenced by the vineyards, Lutheran churches, stone buildings, restaurants and local bakeries.
South Australia’s wine production is now known throughout the world. It currently accounts for around 80% of Australia’s wine exports.
