The Eden Valley Wine Region is renowned as a region of rugged beauty and beautiful and unique wines. The cool climates in the area provides fabulous conditions for the making outstanding white wines such as Chardonnay and Riesling and full-bodied and elegant red wine varieties such as Chardonnay and Shiraz. The altitudes range from 400 and 600 metres, and the area is not a valley as such, but gets its name from the township at the hearts of the region - Eden Valley. The main towns are Keyneton, Moculta, Eden Valley and Springton. The area is generally rough and rocky country. Despite this the region produces wines of great character, delicacy and finesse. The history of the region parallels that of the Barossa Valley immediately to the east of with Eden Valley. Yalumba has very large vineyards
in the area and a winery and cellar door at Angaston. Henschke is another pioneer winery that established vineyards at
Keyneton in the late 1860s. Harvest time is mid to late April. The Eden Valley can be broadly described as the
upland area above 400 metres next to the Barossa Valley. It is a generally windswept country with the vineyards
planted on exposed hills with moderately steep gradients. The temperatures during the growing season are somewhat
lower than those of the Barossa Valley. The final stages of ripening (and harvesting) occur during generally cooler conditions.
Annual rainfall is 750 mm; Mean January temperature: 19.4 degrees C; Sunshine hours per day: 8.8.
