The region is now rightly asserting not only its importance to the wine industry but the inestimable value of its storehouse of century-old vines and historic wineries. The twists and turns of the Barossa Valley are at times as clearly defined as those of the world famous Napa Valley in California.

  • DM - as you know, it's originally from Spain in Aragon. It was the most ... some warm places, like the Barossa Valley, which incidentally has the oldest Garnacha grapevines in the world, it has a strawberry/raspberry fruitiness that's just delicious.
