Set in a gentle hollow amidst rolling wheat fields and vines, the Barossa Valley was originally settled by German Lutherans whose small townships and church spires still survive today.
Vineyards, often with names such as ‘Kaiser Stuhl’, are set among delicatessens whose shelves groan under Germanic delicacies.
