Best Cellar Doors in Barossa

21/02/2023

When it comes to wine country, there’s perhaps no better place to visit in Australia than the Barossa Valley. Situated just an hour’s drive from Adelaide, the region is home to hundreds of gorgeous wineries and cellar doors that are perfect for the wine connoisseur and novice alike. That’s why it can be a bit of challenge when it comes to nailing down the best that the Barossa has to offer. Thankfully, the team at Best Restaurants have come together and curated our top cellar doors where you can experience the finest in winemaking and dining.

 

 

  1. Hentley Farm

    Seppeltsfield, Barossa Valley, South Australia

    Hentley Farm is really something special – the restored 1840s building and the fine dining restaurant are set on the banks of the Greenock Creek.
