Eden Valley

by admin on August 8, 2011

Eden Valley’s roughhewn beauty provides the perfect cool temperature climate for producing the region’s luxurious red wine and high quality Riesling Chardonnay.

As a portion of the Mount Lofty Range the Eden Valley is a region the 400 and 600 metres within the Barossa Range. Not a true valley, the region takes it’s name the Eden Valley Township and has a sub-region in the south called High Eden. The Eden Valley Region’s main towns are Eden Valley,¬† Springton, Keyneton and Moculta. It’s unrefined, craggy terrain disguises it’s capacity for producing wines of exquisite sophistication and delicacy as exemplified by it’s renowned Riesling, Shiraz and Chardonnay.

Having first planted Chardonnay on his Mountadam property, Coonawarra’s David Wynn is among the modern day pioneers in the area now recognized as the High Eden Sub-region.

Although it’s mainly a vineyard region, if you are spending any time in Barossa, don’t miss your chance to visit¬† Eden Valley’s cellar doors.
