Spring in the Barossa Valley
17th September 2019
Spring in the Barossa is without a doubt one of the most beautiful times to visit the wine region. With the combination of welcoming the warmth after winter, the introduction of greenery in vineyards and orchards and the spring sunshine, it is a perfect time to visit. Stay with us at the Barossa Weintal, located in the heart of the valley, close to restaurants, wineries and boutique shops. Read on to discover our guide to spring in the Barossa Valley!
Hot Air Ballooning
An activity you won’t forget, Hot Air Ballooning is a must to truly see the Barossa Valley’s stunning scenery. A peaceful hot air balloon rise over the valley for sunrise is the perfect way to start your day, as you enjoy 360 degree views that span over the Barossa ranges to the ocean.

October long weekend, there is only one place you can rub shoulders with 14 of Barossa Valley’s winemaking elite. Visit the Taste Eden Valley Spring Wine Festival and match your favourite wines with delicious local food and enjoy live music at the Angaston cellar door. Under twinkling fairy lights and starry sky on Friday night and beneath the gorgeous springtime sun on Saturday, it encompasses spring in the Barossa and is a must visit!
The Barossa Valley Cheese Company is a fabulously stinky room, selling handmade cheeses from the milk of local cows and goats. Tastings are free, but it’s unlikely you’ll leave without buying a wedge of Washington Washed Rind. Sit outside with a wine-and-cheese flight or a camembert vs brie taste-off plate.

Iconic to the Barossa, Chateau Tanunda is a monumental stone winery was built in the late 1880s and sits adjacent to some of the oldest vines in the valley. If you want a taste of Barossa history, this is it! We highly recommend trying some Semillon from the 150 year old vines if you get the chance.
Barossa Farmers Market
The Barossa Valley is known for its local produce and there is no better way to taste it then visiting the Barossa Farmer’s Markets. Barossa Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday morning from 7.30am to 11.30am offering the best of fresh, seasonal, artisan made Barossa food.
