The Barossa Valley is 70 kilometres northeast of Adelaide. Adelaide’s international airport welcomes flights from Australia and across the world. Hire a car or driver for the journey to the Barossa. The most direct route from the airport, along Port Wakefield Road and the National Highway M20, takes 1 hour 17 minutes. The drive on Main North Road and Barossa Valley Way will take 1 hour 28 minutes. And the scenic route, via North East Road through Chain of Ponds to Williamstown, takes 1 hour 29 minutes. St Hugo is located at 2141 Barossa Valley Way, Rowland Flat.
As public transport is limited in the Barossa, it’s best to hire a car or enlist the services of a local driver, taxi or tour company to explore the region. Cyclists can take advantage of the tourist routes around the region, including the Jack Bobridge Bike Trail that passes through St Hugo, and the 10-kilometre Barossa Rail Trail, which joins the towns of Tanunda, Nuriootpa and Angaston.
Revered for its full-bodied Shiraz wines, the Barossa Valley is home to some of the oldest grapevines in the world, with examples dating back to the 1840s. The region’s warm continental climate produces red wines of profound depth and intensity. Along with the mainstay of Shiraz, other popular grape varieties include Grenache, Mataro (or Mourvedre), Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Semillon and Chardonnay.
The Barossa Valley experiences four distinct seasons. Spring (September–November) promises mild days and cool nights, with the first buds appearing on the vines. In Summer (December–February), days are hot and dry, the vines are green and the grapes are ripening. Autumn (March–May) delivers warm weather, the excitement of vintage and the chance to taste ripe grapes early in the season, while Winter (June-August) is cooler and less crowded, with daytime temperatures averaging 14°C, dipping to 5°C overnight.
