The Louise, Barossa Valley,
By Sue Gough Henly
The beautiful Barossa Valley, just a one hour drive north of Adelaide, is perhaps Australia's most famous wine region, renowned for its big, bold, shiraz-based wines. Picturesque spired churches dot a landscape patchworked with vines, farms and villages that still retain their German heritage. Quaint vineyard cottages, hotels and classic Australian homesteads are among the distinctive places to stay.
