A brief history and description of the Barossa Valley. au

 

The Barossa Valley was settled in the early 1840's by some British families, the British were followed from 1842 onward, by large groups of Germans who had fled from their homeland to escape religious persecution.

    The first settlers were engaged in agricultural pursuits, but they also turned to grape and fruit growing, for which the Barossa has become renowned.

The Barossa Valley is a comfortable 90 minute drive from the Adelaide city centre, in a North Easterly direction. Head towards the town of Gawler and take the Barossa Highway, from there on you can’t miss it. If you have taken the wrong turn to Truro, don’t worry... you will see Wolf Blass Winery on the right, stop there for a look, then head towards the hills where you should aim for the town of Tanunda.

This wine growing region has several historic wineries and a score of new ones where you may go and taste the wines, usually for free. Tours are conducted for those people who want to partake in these delightful beverages and not have to drive a car.

There are still many things to see that have a German theme; I have taken some photos of the obvious ones.

The other famous wine region of South Australia is south of Adelaide, at McLaren Vale from Adelaide city centre, it is about a 35 to 40 minute drive.

Ein kurzer geschichtlicher Abriss und eine Beschreibung des Barossa Valleys de

Anfangs 1840 ließen sich einige  britische Familien im Barossa Valley nieder, denen schon   1842 die erste große Gruppe von deutschen Siedlern folgte, die  ihre Heimat wegen religiöser Verfolgung verlassen hatten.

Die ersten Ansiedler waren Bauern. Doch schon bald wandten sie sich dem Weinanbau und dem Obstanbau zu und machten das Barossa Valley zu dem, für was es heute steht.

Das Barossa Valley ist in nur ungefähr 90 Minuten gemächlicher Autofahrt nordöstlich von Adelaide-Zentrum entfernt. Man fährt in Richtung Gawler auf die Barossa Valley ‚Highway‘ und diese führt direkt ins Valley. Sollte man versehentlich die falsche Abzweigung nach Truro genommen haben, lasse man sich nicht aus der Ruhe bringen, denn auf  der rechten Seite befindet sich die Weinkellerei Wolf Blass. Man sehe sich am besten diese an, um anschließend in Richtung der Berge weiterzufahren, um  zur Stadt Tanunda zu gelangen.

Dieses Weinanbaugebiet beherbergt einige historische Weinkellereien und natürlich eine Menge neuer Kellereien, die dem Gast häufig sogar zur kostenlosen Weinprobe einladen. Rundfahrten werden für solche Gäste organisiert, die an Weinproben teilnehmen wollen und nicht mit dem eigenen Wagen fahren möchten.

Es gibt dort  noch viele andere Dinge zu sehen, die auf deutschen Hintergrund weisen, von denen ich einige der  auffälligsten fotografierte.

Die andere, ebenfalls sehr bekannte Weinanbaugegend liegt südlich von Adelaide im McLaren Vale. Vom Zentrum Adelaide aus ist es in ca. 35 bis 40 Minuten  Autofahrt zu erreichen.
