A sleepy hamlet in the hills, east of the Barossa Ranges; Springton is renowned for two very different beverages – milk and wine. The high rainfall produces lush green pastures and dairy farming has been the backbone of the region’s economy since the 1850s. Herds of Holstein-Fresian cows are still run on the land today.

The rich soil and elevated position, is also excellent for viticulture; with white varieties, in particular, gaining an outstanding reputation. Modern vignerons in the region are among the Barossa’s most adventurous and are keenly experimenting with Viognier and other lesser-known varietals.

Intersperse your exploration of local wines with visits to the Herbig Family Tree. It is a huge, old hollow gum tree, which was the first home of the Herbig family. Visit the historic Friedensberg Church, with its fascinating pioneer cemetery.
