There's something special about the Barossa.  You can feel it in the landscape, in the people, in the foods and the wine.  It is a beautiful region, with villages, vineyards and farms dotting a patchwork vista.  Barossans are famous for their  generous hospitality, their love of a shared table and their passion for wine!  As of this writing, there are 150 wineries in the Barossa!

The Barossa is considered by many to be Australia's premier wine region.  To highlight this, we have pulled some great wines from the AWAS cellar to show the quality and diversity the Barossa is famous for.

We are grateful to The Listel Hotel, and Chef Chris Whittaker, who will soon be providing an interesting menu to pair with these fabulous wines.  Also to Jacquie Bjorkes, Catering Manger, Forage at the Listel, for organizing the event.
