The Barossa Valley Cheese Company
Home to the best artisan cheese in the Barossa, your tastebuds won’t be disappointed sampling their range of cheeses. It’s like a cellar door but for cheese- so of course this is a must visit during your stay. They’ve even created three specialty wines to perfectly complement their range because what goes better than wine and cheese? Sign us up!
For a taste of Barossa history, visit Chateau Tanunda, the region’s first winery opening in 1840! Take a tour of the iconic estate, visit the cellar door and grab a picnic basked and enjoy it in the stunning grounds.
