Lesser Known Gems on our Barossa Valley Wine Tour
The Barossa Valley is so much more than the big name winery brands! While we do visit some of the better known wineries such as Penfolds, St Hallett, Grant Burge, Saltram and Yalumba wines – we also visit a whole range of lesser known magical boutique wineries and wonderful destinations. We highly recommend giving some of these a go!
