Old vines and classic wines
Originally established by British settlers, the Barossa is one of the most historic wine producing regions in Australia. There is a strong, historic German influence in the Barossa from Prussian Lutheran emigrants, with many descendants of the original settlers now sixth-generation grape growing families.
Barossa is home to Australia’s largest collection of old vines. Many blocks of productive vines date back to the 1860s. Langmeil’s Freedom vineyard (planted in 1843) is likely the oldest Shiraz vineyard in the world.
