The Barossa

The Barossa & Rowland Flat

With over 160 years of winemaking heritage, the Barossa is one of the world’s most acclaimed wine regions.

It enjoys a Mediterranean climate characterised by cool, wet winters, with temperatures between 8°C to 20°C and warm, dry summers where temperatures are generally between 30°C to 35°C.

Nestled at the foot of the Barossa Ranges, the Rowland Flat sub-region is located between the towns of Tanunda and Lyndoch and is home to the 1847 Estate Vineyards. The sub-region covers a small yet unique area and is noted for the bright red colour of its soils. The soils are mixed with a wide assortment of roughly rounded pebbles, many of which are granitic and not found anywhere else in the Barossa.
