“When, in the 1840s, the Barossa Valley’s sheltering hills became a refuge for Lutherans fleeing religious persecution in Germany, one of Australia’s great viticultural traditions was born.  Throughout the 19th century, vines were planted in the rich soils of the Barossa by immigrants well versed in viticulture.  Some of the century-old vines are still producing excellent fruit for fine table wines that have become synonymous with the region.  When the German immigrants arrived they brought with them traditions that make this scenic valley district from other wine regions of Australia.  Picturesque churches that might have been plucked from Europe, brass bands and choirs, plus a range of colourful annual festivals featuring fine wine, food and music, has ensured the Barossa a special place in wine tourism.  The Barossa – Australian Wine Regions introduces readers to the colourful traditions of the area, and the family enterprises that have nurtured fine wines through five or six generations.  “Wine is in our blood”, say those associated with the valley’s most famous vineyards – and this memorable book celebrates that fact with superb illustrations and an informative text.”
