The Eden Valley is located alongside the Barossa Valley and both saw their first vines planted in 1842.
The Eden Valley's growing season temperatures are significantly lower than those of the Barossa, with the final stages of ripening and harvesting take place in much cooler conditions. Water availability is a limiting factor in the expansion of vineyards.
The main wine styles produced include Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
