The Bethany Wine District includes wineries and vineyards in the Barossa Valley south of the historic township of Bethany, and east of the major service and tourist town of Tanunda. Bethany is renowned as the first townships established in the Barossa Valley in 1842. Prussian immigrants leased land from local land owner, George Fife Angas, and established a community. The German influence is still showcased by the magnificent set of historic buildings in the town including: The Lutheran Church which daties from 1883 and the mud and stone building `Landhaus` , dating from the 1840s, which has been renovated and is now used as a restaurant. A good way of seeing the area is by following the Heysen Trail that runs from Hahndorf in the Barossa Valley through to the Flinders Ranges. The trail passes

Bethany Wines has built a reputation as one of Australia's finest wine producers, underpinned by a strong sense of family tradition since the mid-1800s. The winery is owned and run by the Schrapel family, who first planted vines in 1852 soon after arriving from Silesia. Like many of their fellow Germanic migrants, they established a home in Bethany and cleared the land to grow winegrapes and graze animals. More than a century later, fifth generation descendants, brothers Geoff and Robert Schrapel, established Bethany Wines as a wine company.
