Take an afternoon's jaunt to the Barossa Valley, one of Australia's most acclaimed wine regions. This bucolic area is home to charming villages, farm stands and, of course, wineries. Some 500 families grow grapes here, while there are more than 150 wineries with tasting rooms to visit. Sip world-famous varietals such as Barossa shiraz and Eden Valley riesling at estates whose gorgeous rural settings may have you dreaming about buying a piece of land. The next best thing? Taking home a memory of the prime terroir in the form of a bottle or two for your own cellar.
