South Australia is Australia’s largest wine-producing state and Barossa Valley, to the north east of Adelaide, is one of the country’s flagship wine-producing areas. A region of valley floors and rolling hills around the North Para River, it contains some of Australia’s oldest vineyards. The star turn here is the Shiraz grape which produces wine of great depth and complexity. Whilst there is a wide range of wine hotels in the Barossa Valley, our two favourites are both in the luxury category.
Situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley, this luxury hotel offers large rooms with spa baths and outdoor rainshowers, plus glorious views over the surrounding vines. Appellation Restaurant is widely regarded as one of Australia's finest and the wine list is second to none!
This stunning 19th century homestead has been converted into a luxurious hotel with seven exquisite ensuite rooms on the edge of the Barossa Valley. Facilities include a swimming pool and restaurant specialising in local ingredients. Try the bush bath for the ultimate romantic experience.
