At the heart of all things food and wine at Abbotsford is an undying belief in the quality of Barossa wines and produce. The Barossa has a well-earned international reputation for its wines, regarded by some as Australia's greatest wine region and amongst the greatest in the world. But little is known by many of its genuine food culture, formed from its Mediterranean climate, the 'German' and British descent of its settlers. So no matter the economic ebbs and flows of the Barossa wine industry, Barossans eat well and so will you at Abbotsford. The Barossa people love their food, and they love it home grown. What is not sourced directly from the Country House’s own farm or other local producers is often sourced from the Barossa Farmers Market.
