Barossa Valley areas and region

T he Barossa Valley is a region made up of many different areas not just a vineyard district but also an area committed to farming and tourism. The Barossa Valley is famous in the most amazing places why? Because if you walk into a top restaurant in the centre of London or New York you will most probably find a bottle of Shiraz produced in the Barossa Valley. Names could include Jacob's Creek, Wolf Blass or Penfold's or hundreds of other names with Barossa attached.

The most amazing fact about Barossa's fame is that many people never link the two, what do I mean by this well, people in London love a Barossa red but if you asked them where Barossa is they would say Australia, however they would not say near Adelaide one of Australia's larger top five largest cities. They would most probably say just 'Australia' They would not even know it was from the state of South Australia as most foreigners are generally unaware of the fact Australia has states like the USA.

Some areas of Barossa I will break into two groups primary areas that are famously Barossa, as if I dig to deep here I may cross local views on the topic of what areas fall under the Barossa.
