The quintessential wine country quaint towns, popular for their pretty landscapes, Georgian architecture, Lutheran churches, vintage festivals and generous hospitality, both Adelaide Hills and Barossa Valley share in a common spirit as Australia’s elite wine producers. The strong Germanic influences on food – breads, artisan cheese, pastries, meats, pates, tarts and other smallgoods, as well as on popular culture, mean that the regions have a subtle European vibe. And the cool crisp weather adds to the splendour, with a thin veil of mist all summer, and frosty winter that is known to receive the slightest snowfall once in every few years.
