Over decades, Barossa winemakers had conversations that began with “Wouldn’t it be great if we could show the world how well Barossa wines age…” Finally, during the 2011 Barossa Vintage Festival, the wine fraternity Barons of Barossa launched the concept of a Barossa Cellar, then put out a call to the region’s winemaker for donation of their top wines. The response was overwhelming, reinforcing the Barons’ determination to make such a Cellar a reality.
Officially opened in March 2020, The Barossa Cellar is now a reality, with an incredible wine collection of thousands of wines aging gracefully in a secure, temperature-controlled vault. Built into a hillside overlooking the Barossa Valley, this environmentally considerate building makes an indelible mark in the timeline of the region.
The Barossa Cellar has become the beating heart of this region’s wine community. The only regional wine centre of its kind in Australia, it is a touchstone for winemakers, viticulturists and wine afficionados alike.
- A home for the Barossa wine community, including the day-to-day operations of Barossa Australia
- A place to educate the global wine community about the Barossa, and to showcase the aging potential of our wines.
- Home to a magnificent collection of fine wines generously donated by Barossa and Eden Valley winemakers.
Although The Barossa Cellar is not a cellar door, visitors are invited to experience bookable wine events and tastings. Visit our Experiences page for more information and to book.
